The book is a collection of essays exploring two threads of the evolution of Japanese architecture: the styles and the rituals which have persevered through the centuries, maintaining a traditional stronghold, and the styles and rituals which have adapted to the times and the influence of the Western world while still employing a lesser degree of tradition. Each essay focuses on the Japanese concept of space making and space understanding. Alongside this overriding theme, the author provides a penetrative study of time, the element which complements space. England and Japan respectively.
