WAAC Member & Artist Ted Scott published his new book “The Birth of Architecture in Japan”

This book explains and illustrates the development of Japan’s native architecture from the earliest buildings until the time when the influence of an imported style became overwhelming.

During the 52 years that I’ve been studying Japanese architectural history, I’ve felt that something about the descriptions I was reading in the literature was lacking. None of he authors was talking about the aesthetics which I see in the buildings and approaches, and no one was explaining why the evolution was happening, what was causing it. Those two issues are the reasons for this long, profusely illustrated essay.
