Where They Create Japan.
This second volume of Where They Create - the book form of photographer Paul Barbera's successful blog - is focused entirely on Japan: a country with a culture forever concerned with traditionalism while pushing the boundaries of technology and creativity.
Barbera documented the studios of 32 architects, artists, fashion designers and other creatives while Kanae Hasegawa interviewed the head designers and owners of the studios. Together they uncovered their vision of Japanese heritage, their way of working and how the space in which they create influences their work.
Where They Create Japan offers a look behind the scenes of Japanese creativity, stepping inside the workspaces of Tadao Ando, Kenya Hara, Toyo Ito, White Mountaineering, Wonderwall and others.
