While Japan in the 1950s to the 1970s was under the strong influence of the United States, Japanese architects and designers developed new movements like Metabolism and Anonymous Design to visualize the their future. Osaka, as a host city of World Expo 1970, is still filled with various “modernistic” buildings. This book revisits those old futuristic buildings and reintroduces its design details. Fun to read as inspirational design source, cultural anthropology, or architectural history.
