*UNDER ARCHITECTURAL EXPERIENCE
Mountains, City, And Seas
If there is such thing as a Mecca for architects, surely there could be none other. A milieu of gleaming modern buildings, urban populations wrapping around forests riddled with temples seem to all be one.
Japan is a land where modern principles of design seem an age-old tradition. Elsewhere, where nostalgia has held their county's ransom to ages' past, Japan has been able to embrace its historic side while presenting progressive and well-founded design.
Japan with has a pragmatic reality about it. Doing away with cumbersome code with demanding specifications for preventative measures for human stupidity, instead opts for human-worthy spaces. It reserves its concern for natural disasters and fires.
