How to Make a Japanese House is a new book by Wallpaper* contributor, Cathelijne Nuijsink, that takes a detailed look at the aesthetics of Japanese design and architecture. Going as far back as the 1950s and 60s, the book works its way forward through 21 case studies “each of which is richly illustrated with pictures and plans and questions about the nature of the brief, the approach and the ways in which domestic space can be made to define a very individual approach to architecture.” Notable names within its pages include Kengo Kuma, Jun Aoki, Atelier Bow-Wow, Sou Fujimoto, TNA, amongst others. Published by Dutch imprint NAi, How to Make a Japanese House will be available from Amazon on September 30, 2012.
