[Guide to 20th-century architecture. Japan] This guide features the most significant episodes of 20th-century architecture in Japan, following an ideal itinerary from north to south. The sequence of the buildings is determined by the order of movement, to compensate for the complexity of the urban and territorial geography of Japan where, for example, our familiar system of street names does not apply. Each profile is composed of a heading, a brief description and an essential bibliography. Accurate indices of the prefectures and the architects complete this pocket guide designed as a useful travel tool.
