Description

The Genius of Japanese Carpentry tells the story of the 1200-year-old Yakushiji monastery in Nara and the dedicated up to date-day craftsmen who are working to restore what has been lost to the depredations of time, fire and warfare. Even if the full monastery reconstruction is probably not completed until 2030, one of the most primary temples, the Picture Hall, has been wholly restored employing the same woodworking technology used to create the original building.

This new edition of an architectural classic is by Azby Brown—one of the most world’s leading experts on Japanese architecture. It accommodates a new preface and lots of new text materials and photographs—most of them now to be had in color for the first time. Azby Brown chronicles the painstaking restoration of the temple through extensive interviews with the carpenters and woodworkers in conjunction with original drawings in response to the plans of master carpenter Tsunekazu Nishioka.

An inspiring testament to the dedication of these craftsmen and their philosophy of carpentry work as a type of personal fulfillment, The Genius of Japanese Carpentry offers detailed documentation of this singular project and a moving reminder of the unique cultural continuity found in Japan.
