The Art of Japanese Architecture

The Art of Japanese Architecture attempts to detail the shifting patterns and trends in architecture in Japan over many generations, beginning with the Jomon period, 10000 BCE up through the present day. With their book, authors David and Michiko Young provide a unique opportunity to explore how building in Japan has been shaped over long periods of time by numerous factors and influences, including the first contact with China and Korea and the adoption of Buddhism, the formation of a feudal society, and eventually contact with the West.

What a neat book. I have been fascinated since I first toured my first Japanese Garden in 1986. I really admire their architecture and gardens. The use of nature and natural building are an inspiration. This book would be an nice addition to my collection/ library. I am building my home, straw bale/ cob now. Would love to use some wooden aspects inside. I already plan for a Japanese Garden on the property, at a future date.

The Japanese culture has produce some of the most exquisite architecture known in human history. The techniques, processes, and patience placed into the structure that house, not just humans, but the very culture itself, is something to be in awe of. A book documenting this is crucial to have on a well worn book shelf. I, for one, would welcome this book next to its well used brothers on my shelf.

I would highly recommend this book for anyone whom loves the art of Japanese Architecture. I am a Navy Seabee and been in for 24 years. I would love to get this book because I have traveled all over Japan and they are losing the art of small and large traditional architecture! This book keeps it alive. One fascinating feet of reconstruction was getting the tour at Shuri-Jo Castle, Okinawa, the reconstruction efforts where amazing! I must have taken 160 pictures of all the joints and examples all over the palace. I just purchased my retirement dream home and it has 17 acres of which I plan to construct a Japanese traditional Tea House right by the pond of Koi and Bass. I am sure that this book will keep the creative juices flowing as I finish construction.

I particular enjoy a piece of every old type of building, japanese techniques are so ancient, so perfectioned that will be a pleasure to learn things from this culture and keep on mixing the use of tools, finishings, etc.

I have been to Japan several times and lived in Korea for 7 years. As an avid Miyamoto Mushashi fan I was always attracted to all aspects of their culture. I would dearly love to be able toincorporatesome traditional japanese techniques to keep those fond memories alive. Peace and love.

I would love to have a copy of this book to give my son who is entering his second year of architecture studies. He travelled to Japan with some friends a few years ago for a skiing trip and visited some of the traditional and sacred buildings but his friends were not too interested in a historical tour. He plans to return one day and see more of the buildings of historical Japan.

as a fourth generation Asian American and one who has often been the first Asian American to hold the public and private sector senior positions that I have held I feel a certain responsibility and obligation to help those who also chose to go down the paths that I have. At this time of my life I have found that my ethnic and cultural routes have taken on a stronger presence in my life and I am proud to surround myself in the richness of our Asian heritage. Japanese architecture is definitely of love of mine. Plus, I aspire to build a traditional Japanese Summer house in Texas on the grounds of my new restaurant.

I would love to have this book because I have been so interested in Japanese architecture and in their customs. I will however NOT leave my information via public. You may email me and ask me for that information.

Japanese pottery is among the finest in the world and includes the earliest known Japanese artifacts; Japanese export porcelain has been a major industry at various points. Japanese lacquerware is also one of the world's leading arts and crafts, and works gorgeously decorated with maki-e were exported to Europe and China, remaining important exports until the 19th century.[1][2] In architecture, Japanese preferences for natural materials and an interaction of interior and exterior space are clearly expressed.

In the early years of the Edo period, however, the full impact of Tokugawa policies had not yet been felt, and some of Japan's finest expressions in architecture and painting were produced: Katsura Palace in Kyoto and the paintings of Tawaraya Sōtatsu, pioneer of the Rinpa school.

Architecture: Katsura Detached Palace, built in imitation of Genji's palace, contains a cluster of shoin buildings that combine elements of classic Japanese architecture with innovative restatements. The whole complex is surrounded by a beautiful garden with paths for walking.Many of powerful daimyōs (feudal lords) built a Circuit style Japanese garden in the territory country, and competed for the beauty.

By the early 20th century, European art forms were well introduced and their marriage produced notable buildings like the Tokyo Train Station and the National Diet Building that still exist today. Tokyo Station, a building of Giyōfū architecture, full of bricks and pseudo-European style. This style of building was built in urban areas.

The proliferation of new types of art was supported by the tremendous growth of Japan's economy in the 1960s, remembered as the "Japanese economic miracle." Over the course of the 1960s, the Japanese economy grew by over 10% per year. Rising wealth created a new class of consumers who could afford to spend money on art and support different types of art and artists. For the first time in Japan's modern history, it became viable for significant numbers of artists to make a living purely through selling their art. The 1960s construction boom in Japan, which leveled the old wood-and-paper traditional Japanese architecture and replaced it with sparkling mega-cities of glass and steel, helped inspire brand new schools of Japanese architecture, such as the Metabolism (architecture) movement led by Kenzō Tange, that boldly broke free from conventional models and proved influential around the world.

Japanese contemporary art takes as many forms and expresses as many different ideas as worldwide contemporary art in general. It ranges from advertisements, anime, video games, and architecture as already mentioned, to sculpture, painting, and drawing in all their myriad forms. Japanese artists have made especially notable contributions to global contemporary art in the fields of architecture, video games, graphic design, fashion, and perhaps above all, animation. While anime at first were derived primarily from manga stories,[citation needed] diverse anime abounds today, and many artists and studios have risen to great fame as artists; Hayao Miyazaki and the artists and animators of Studio Ghibli are generally regarded to be among the best the anime world has to offer. 041b061a72
