Czech architect Antonin Raymond, who lived and worked in the United States and Japan, played a pivotal role in the dissemination of modern architecture in the latter. His initial work with American architects Cass Gilbert and Frank Lloyd Wright gave him an insight into the use of concrete for texture and structure that he would refine throughout his career, taking these innovations with him to Tokyo where he explored their integration with traditional Japanese building techniques. This book, a special reprint of the original from 1938, shows Raymonds comprehensive design aesthetic, from houses to furniture, through carefully executed drawings and archival photographs.
