Japan 2000 : architecture and design for the Japanese public by Japan 2000( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Japanese architecture and design acquired international prominence in the so-called "bubble-economy" era of the 1980s. Japanese products - from automobiles to electronic equipmentwere sold in record numbers the world over, and Japanese brand names became synonymous with high quality." "Now that the boom of the 1980s has given way to a recession, what is the country's designed and built environment like, and what are the factors that determine it? This attractive volume and the traveling exhibition it accompanies seek to address these questions. Essays written by experts in their fields are accompanied by impressive color plates to present Japanese architecture and design of the 1990s to a Western readership for the first time."--Jacket

Hitoshi Abe by Naomi R Pollock( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A designer of remarkable talent, Hitoshi Abe (b.1962) is one of the most important rising figures in contemporary Japanese architecture. As the chair of the Department of Architecture and Urban Design at the University of California, Los Angeles, Abe is also forming an invaluable connection between his homeland and the international architecture community. Throughout his career, Abe has taught at prestigious institutions on both sides of the Pacific, including Tohoku University and the University of California, Berkeley. Since establishing Atelier Hitoshi Abe in his hometown of Sendai in 1992, Abe has attracted wide acclaim for his bold and complex buildings, including the Miyagi Stadium (2000), the dynamic Kanno Museum (2006), and the Reihoku Community Hall (2002), for which he won the Architectural Institute of Japan Award in 2003, as well as a wide range of commercial and residential projects." "Produced in collaboration with the architect, this book presents the best of Hitoshi Abe's completed buildings. Author Naomi Pollock details Abe's creative process and places his architecture in both a Japanese and an international context, fully documenting a broad selection of his work through conceptual diagrams, plans, and photographs. The only comprehensive monograph on Hitoshi Abe and an essential reference work, this book is an inspiring look at Abe's innovative practice."--Jacket
Jutaku : Japanese houses by Naomi R Pollock( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quirky, surprising and entertaining - with more than 400 houses, Jutaku is architecture at the speed of Japan. Frenetic. Pulsating. Disorienting. Japan's contemporary culture is constantly in flux. In stark contrast to the centuries old imperial architecture of Kyoto, recent Japanese architectural practices have ushered in an era of continuous experimentation. With 500 houses, one house per page, one image per house, 'Jutaku: Japanese houses' is a fast-paced, 'quick hit' shock to the system that shines a Harajuku-bright neon light on the sheer volume, variety and novelty of contemporary Japanese residential architecture. Featuring the work of many of Japan's most famous architects including Shigeru Ban, Sou Fujimoto, Toyo Ito, Kengo Kuma, Jun Igarishi, Shuhei Endo and dozens of up and coming and completely unknown young architects, 'Jutaku' is organized geographically taking readers on a bullet train journey across Japan's architectural landscape. Essential reading for architects, designers and fans of contemporary Japanese culture

Sou Fujimoto by Naomi R Pollock( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first comprehensive monograph on Japan's most creative, experimental and visionary architect, Sou Fujimoto. Occasionally an architect emerges whose vision is so fresh that it causes us to reconsider the very nature of architecture. Sou Fujimoto is one of those architects. Guided by instinct and keen observation, he casts convention aside. Instead he blurs boundaries and routinely rethinks basic building blocks. Both comfortably familiar and curiously enigmatic, Fujimoto's dynamic work grabs our attention then lingers on in our minds. Born and bred in Hokkaido, Fujimoto received his undergraduate degree in architecture from Tokyo University before embarking on an uncharted, solo exploration that probed the possibilities of architecture. Unfettered by the ideas and practices of others, Fujimoto's work has clarity of thought and purity of execution seldom seen. Fujimoto garnered significant international attention for his popular 2013 Serpentine Pavilion in London (Fujimoto was the youngest architect to receive the highly-regarded commission). In 2012 he was part of the Japanese team that won a Golden Lion award for Best National Participation at the Venice Architecture Biennale for their design of alternative housing concepts for the homes that were destroyed by the tsunami
Made in Japan : 100 new products by Naomi R Pollock( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Made in Japan' is a simple phrase, but one full of meaning. From kettles and cutlery to chairs, Japan creates some of the most innovative, elegant, whimsical and well-made objects in the world. Combining high aesthetic standards with cutting-edge technology, many of these designs turn everyday items into functional works of art that would look as good in a museum as on a kitchen counter

City with a Hidden Past by Fumihiko Maki( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thirty years after the original Japanese edition by Fumihiko Maki and a team from Maki and Associates, an English-language version of this book is finally available. The original was based on a commissioned study on "The Desirable Living Environment" and examined Japanese urban spaces in the context of Tokyo's rapid change and the city's distinctive aesthetic consciousness. In particular, the concern for surface layers, micro-topographies, and small spaces in the metropolis received special focus. With the ever-growing and new global metropolises emerging today, fundamentally different attitudes toward public domains are revealed. It is clear that old ideas no longer apply
