Item description for Small House Tokyo: How the Japanese Live Well in Small Spaces by Brett Bull Cocoro Books...
" It all depends on your imagination" Satoshi Kurosaki, Apollo Architects & Associates Tokyo's architects are in the process of drafting a small revolution in urban design. Micro homes, or kyosho jutaku, are reshaping the way the Japanese live and work, while at the same time shaking up staid urban neighborhoods with stunning designs that adhere to few rules. With creative use of wood, glass and concrete, these small houses defy the limited spaces they are built on, boasting open-plan living rooms, cozy dens, inner gardens, and raised patios. With stunning photography that reveals Japan as a powerhouse of architectural innovation, Small House Tokyo brings together some of the leading designs in the kyosho jutaku movement. Over 150 full-color photos of both interiors and exteriors provide not only an uncharacteristic view of today's urban Japan, but offer potential property buyers in the West a plethora of ideas on how to turn a small house into a beautiful home.
