Why read it?
1 author picked Frank Lloyd Wright and Japan as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

The first appeared when I began working on the first edition of Analysing Architecture back in the 1990s. It is Kevin Nute’s exploration of the ideas that Frank Lloyd Wright gleaned from encounters with traditional Japanese architecture in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Nute’s book influenced my perception of architectural creativity as not fitting neatly into separate historical/stylistic categories, but as a realm of possible cross-fertilisation across cultures.
From Simon's list on traditional architecture and its contemporary practice.
