First published as a quarterly journal in May 1985. Published monthly starting in May 1986. Every issue of Jutakutokushu – Housing Special – introduces and interprets ten or more houses with beautiful photography and detailed plans. The houses are approached as vehicles for architectural insight, proposals for new ways of living and showcases for various techniques and technologies. From the start the journal has striven to meet the professional needs of residential designers and architects while also appealing to the interests of a broader readership. Jutakutokushu will continue to straightforwardly communicate the diverse values of the house as a class of architecture intimately linked to day-to-day living.
