Examination of Japanese architecture (buildings and gardens) and their contexts: landscapes, settlements, and cities. The course is addressed to those interested in Japanese architecture as a manifestation of Japanese culture and as a subject for analysis.

Readings focus on theoretical treatments of these aspects by Japanese and western writers.
