Reviews

'images are carefully chosen and beautifully juxtaposed' IDFX, October 2007 'This poetic book analyses complexities of Japanese style. Instead of straightforward case studies on well known examples, it tackles underlying aspects of culture with references to Buddhism, mythology, Zen philosophy, architecture and the visual arts. Beautifully illustrated, and far more than just Ando, tea ceremonies and Noh theatre.' Building Design, 26 October 2007
