Description Place, Time and Being in Japanese Architecture de Kevin H. Nute:

This work examines buildings which, by actively celebrating the fundamental parameters of physical existence, seem able in a number of ways to enhance human experience of being. This includes helping us to orientate ourselves and feel more at home in the world, making us more alive to the moment, and confirming the intrinsic uniqueness of all materiality, including our own. In addition to highlighting the apparently transcultural human benefits of built environments which acknowledge particular place, time and being, many of the Japanese buildings examined illustrate practical strategies for revealing these existential parameters which appear to be equally applicable beyond Japan. It is suggested that wider use of some of these approaches could not only help to sustain both environmental and cultural identities against the homogenising effects of globalisation, but also has the potential of heightening our everyday appreciation of the peculiar condition of being here now. Kevin Nute is an associate professor of architecture at the University of Oregon and the author of the American Institute of Architects' award-winning book Frank Lloyd Wright and Japan. The publication of the present work was supported by grants from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts and the Japan Foundation.
