€ 24,50
FOBA, an internationally architectural practice based in Kyoto, looks beyond the aesthetics of minimalism, instead finding inspiration in the relationships between structure and site.The book also chronicles the FOB Homes systema FOBA subsidiary company established in 1999 a response to the generic mass-produced pre-fabricated housing available in Japan. With five basic prototypes that can be easily adapted to any site or client, FOB Homes redefines the concept of standardized housing. Their simple, neutral white boxes counter the visual chaos of contemporary Japan and offer the elegance and experience of "architecture" to the general publica union of modernist aesthetics with the modernist ideology of democratic, affordable design.
