Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 458227790X, Paperback)

This is a book of photographs and short stories of Charlie Koolhaas's journey through many of the remaining buildings of the Metabolist Movement, the first non-western avant-garde, launched in Tokyo in 1960, in the midst of Japan's postwar miracle.
Charlie travelled across Japan In 2009 to photograph how the projects invented by these idealistic thinkers had survived and aged, and how they were being inhabited today. What she found were triumphant and at times eerie constructions that had taken on a life of there own.
