Tuttle Shokai Inc
Publication Date :
1 Jan 2010
Thick thatched roofs and rough mud plaster walls. Intricate carved wood transoms and precisely woven tatami mats each element of traditional Japanese architecture tells a story. In" Traditional Japanese Architecture," author Mira Locher explores how each of these stories encompasses the particular development, construction, function and symbolism inherent in historic architectural elements. From roofs, walls and floors to door pulls and kettle hangers, "Traditional Japanese Architecture" situates these elements firmly within the natural environment and traditional culture of Japan."
