Architects today are redefining the formation of modern housing concepts around the world and this is most prevalent in Japan, where the diversity of contemporary residential design is both wide-ranging and exemplary. Professor Zhao Xiang, from Fukuoka University, provides indepth analyses of the historical influences of a dozen different design themes that have played a vital role in Japanese professional practice across the last six decades, such as the stereoscopic detached living mode; the new parameters for personal and traditional 'space'; the spatial responses to a modern family concept; the use of 'abstract space'; and even urban guerilla housing. There are also more than 40 case studies, highly illustrated throughout, that serve as the strongest reflection of the rich diversity of modern houses currently trending across Japan today.
