The search for an independent cultural identity - and for an architecture that is emblematic of that identity - is a recurring characteristic of Japan's design world. Japan Houses presents 28 of the country's finest contemporary houses that have evolved in response to social, political and climatic pressures and powerful individual ideas. Each house is beautifully captured in breathtaking photographs, showcasing the creativity of Japan's leading architects and designers and their innovative use of building materials, spatial concepts and aesthetic surprise
