Description

One particular, architecturally complex building type at the intersection of multiple currents of Japanese philosophy, art and esthetics is the Japanese teahouse. This volume explores the philosophical background as well as the aesthetic and spatial principles. The author takes the reader on a cultural-historical and architectural journey through time, from the beginnings in the 15th century, when the art of the tea ceremony as well as the space in which it took place were recorded for the first time to the present day, when the design and construction of a teahouse is still perceived in Japan as a great challenge for designers and architects.
