Japanese residential buildings are known for their beautiful and cutting-edge designs, green building materials, and rugged construction quality. Japanese people boldly accept innovative design, and the academic community has greatly encouraged the innovation of residences. This has provided excellent conditions for a large number of Japanese architects to experiment with new approaches, and has led to Japanese housing design being a model for other countries. This book brings together more than 60 distinctive Japanese residential and interior designs. These projects illustrate designers who pay great attention to people's daily lives. The houses in this book offer an exciting look at where Japanese housing design is going.
