What makes something a “Japanese house”?

This special issue of Jutakutokushu, published as a supplementary resource to the 2017 Tokyo exhibition of the same name, presents a genealogy of detached residences for our readers to both contextualize and deconstruct. Beginning with socioeconomic turbulence of the immediate post-war period, this book and the related exhibition trace the fragmenting values and radical transformations of the modern Japanese built environment—at the scale of the “home.”

The Japanese House Architecture— and Life After 1945 includes:
