The introduction of the use of high-strength steel in residential architecture has expanded the range of design possibilities that has at the same time been limited without a proper understanding of its physical properties and its application. JA charts the history of the use of steel in small-scale Japanese houses, starting with Kenji Hirose’s ‘SH-1’ built in 1953 and concluding with the celebrated projects of today. Illustrated throughout with a generous array of technical drawings and photographs, the edition also features houses from Shoei Yoh, Toyo Ito, Waro Kishi + K. Associates, Sejima, Nishizawa, Masaki Endoh, Kazuhiko Namba and TNA.
