This research project was created during a 3-month study residence in Japan (Nagoya). It is a website about Japanese interior and houshold appliances. We compared three different kinds of dwellings: A paper-made old fashioned Japanese house from about 1900, a 70’s apartment in a 3 story building and a modern apartment in a highrise block from 2000. As an introduction I compared the climate and geographical particularities of Tokyo and Berlin.
Also I roughly outlined the Japanese history of architecure and the phenomena of the declining Tatami space in newer apartments.
