Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Sharp, crisp, transparent, and light"—Library Journal
Library Journal

While Iwatate (eat.work.shop) visits 30 homes throughout Japan whose modern design is "sharp, crisp, transparent, and light," Francione (Bali Modern, Bali Houses) continues his examination of contemporary Balinese architecture, visiting 21 residential dwellings "selected because of their architectural creativity and their un-hackneyed interior design schemes." Recommended for large and academic interior design collections.
