Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Japanese residential design has evolved as a distinctive response to social, political, and climatic pressures-along with the powerful individual ideas of its architects. Japan Houses presents 28 of the country's finest contemporary houses. Each house is beautifully captured through breathtaking photographs, showcasing the creativity of Japan's leading architects and designers and their innovative use of building materials, spatial concepts, and aesthetic surprise.
