I was borrowing this and had to give it back and it's expensive, but a beautiful book and more than anything is helping me to understand Japan before and just after WWII in a way that I never have before. The layout of the book could be described as interactive since the reader is able to choose how they would like to tackle the linear history of this architectural movement and the reams of interviews that are interspersed with the story of the metabolists and accompanying illustrations and phot [...]

Part Tange/Kurokawa biography, part history of post-war Japan, part sad story of the last architectural movement that nearly took off but didn't (I'm thankful it didn't). Then again, aren't our cities now largely metabolic? What the metabolists didn't predict is that people didn't just want to change building components, they want to change entire buildings. Best read of 2012.

Edited by Rem Koolhaas (an excellent interviewer), who conducts this survey of the Metabolist architecture movement. One of those books that, every time I opened it, I learned something new and interesting. Useful to anyone researching post-war Japan, modernity, architecture, urban planning. A fascinating reference book.

First thing: Fluro orange and pink text on a white background? Books aren't usually black on white for no good reason.Very interesting look at post war architecture in Japan and how it relates to their culture. Well worth a read.

This is a great book, a collection of really in depth interviews, architectural documents and a lot of historical context for the broader history of international architecture. A great reference.
