Jutakutokushu August 2017 Special Issue The Japanese House— Architecture and Life after 1945



What makes something a “Japanese house”?

This special issue of Jutakutokushu, published as a supplementary resource to the 2017 Tokyo exhibition of the same name, presents a genealogy of detached residences for our readers to both contextualize and deconstruct. Beginning with socioeconomic turbulence of the immediate post-war period, this book and the related exhibition trace the fragmenting values and radical transformations of the modern Japanese built environment—at the scale of the “home.”
