In an examination of Modernism, Japan: 3 Generations of Avant-Garde Architects studies seven innovative minds who fuse Japanese traditions with modern materials and technology. Bonded by a belief in architectural savagery and brute minimalism, Itsuko Hasegawa, Arata Isozaki, Toyo Ito, Tadao Ando, Kasuo Shinohara, Fumihiko Maki, and Kenzo Tange shine in this Golden Age of Japanese architecture.
