ENCOUNTERS AND POSITIONS: ARCHITECTURE IN JAPAN. Birkhauser-Verlag fur Architektur, Basel, 2016. 0. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Walter de Gruyter, GmbH, Berlin. 272 pp. ISBN 9783035608465 In English.
Due date: December 2016. Publisher's description: Now as before, Japanese architecture is very popular in Europe and the western world. The book provides an overview of its many design concepts and cross-references. Using design examples and interviews, the book presents thirteen current positions. The publication focuses on young architects who take up extremely independent positions within Japanese architecture, as well as on Pritzker Prize winners Shigeru Ban, Toyo Ito and Kazuyo Sejima. Six essays by European specialists on Japan provide supplementary insights into the aesthetics and space concepts of Japanese architecture, making cross-references to Japan's architectural history, and explaining current lines of development. The book thus combines a self-reflective approach with an outsider's analytical view.
