This lavishly illustrated book features homes located throughout the United States, including Hawaii, "that represent some of the most interesting and important examples of Asian influence in the new ecology of American home design." Color photographs depict a variety of home styles, from classic interpretations of Japanese domestic architecture to Balinese pavilions. For each of the 23 structures, design writer Langeteig describes the inhabitants' lifestyles and the aesthetic sense that made the choice of an Asian style so appealing. How the designers and architects incorporated these influences is also discussed. Included is Melody Woods III, which is completely furnished with acclaimed Japanese American woodworker George Nakashima's work. Recommended for large interior design collections.
