Новая архитектура Японии: экология взаимодействия

In today's world a term "ecological architecture" is  defined not only by standards that aim to prevent negative impact from environment to a human being, but also by standards that aim to minimize human impact on the environment. In traditional Japanese architecture the three core elements — human being, building and nature—are not opposed to each other, but coexist in a constant dialogue.

This paper is aims to describe a new attitude emerging in contemporary Japanese architecture, which combine experience and perspective of the past with the present innovations. Projects of Taira Nishizawa Architects, SUEP. (Yoko and Hirokazu Suemitsu) and DESIGN NEUOB (Hiroshi Ota and Toru Kashihara) are examined.
