Размер: 13,5 mb
Japanese architecture is one of the most inspired manifestations of Japanese civilizations. Arguing that architectural styles are more than just symbols of the powers that created them, William Coaldrake explores the symbiotic relationship between architecture and authority throughout Japanese history. Exploring key structures and how they have been used as active conveyors of power, Coaldrake relates buildings to the political ambitions and religious beliefs of the major historical eras in Japan.
