Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Written by Thomas Daniell, with a foreword by Thomas Weaver and an afterword by Peter Cook, An Anatomy of Influence contains a wealth of texts and images that together elucidate the theory and practice of 12 leading Japanese architects. Rather than the usual array of exquisite yet autonomous buildings, this book focuses on the hitherto unexplored lives of their architects and the febrile intellectual, social and political environment in which they worked. The period covered spans from the postwar decades up to the present day, but the emphasis is on the radical transformation of Japan's architectural culture that occurred in the 1960s and 1970s.
