Architecture

Temple and Teahouse in Japan - Werner Blaser

After a trip to Japan in 1953, Werner Blaser published his landmark book on classical Japanese architecture. His studies of 17th and 18th-century wooden buildings document minimalist, grid-based structures using stark black-and-white photographs, some colour photographs and numerous line drawings. His book, highly prized in terms of design and content, contributed significantly to introducing Japanese aesthetics to Western architecture, art and graphics. Mies van der Rohe, for example, gave it to many of his friends.

Reprint of the groundbreaking first edition from 1955 with newly scanned photos and
contributions by Christian Blaser, Werner Blaser's son, a contribution by Inge Andritz on Mies van der Rohe and Japanese architecture, and a personal afterword by Tadao Ando.
