Zen Spaces & Neon Places: Reflections on Japanese Architecture and Urbanism by Vinayak Bharne
Moving across Japanese history in time and space–from its ancient Shinto beginnings to its largest recorded earthquake, and from the spiritual calm of Ise and Ryoanji to the psychedelic consumerism of Shinjuku and Ginza–the book catches all of the dimensions and sensations of the Japanese built environment.
Books will be available for purchase and signing. Light refreshments.
