Dive deeper into the rich traditions of Japanese culture with this two-pack of books about the region’s architecture and agriculture. In Living in Japan, readers will discover the ways contemporary Japanese designers refurbish and reimagine the ways of old, creating cleverly designed spaces with classic materials like wood, brick, and bamboo. And in Japanese Gardens, you’ll find a detailed history of the five major gardening epochs and learn about the ongoing attempt to unite the randomness of nature with man-made aesthetics, symmetry, and geometry.
