Présentation de l'éditeur

Over twelve hundred years ago in the ancient Japanese capital of Nara, anonymous carpenters erected a number of intricately-designed timber temples and pagodas for a new Buddhist monastery known as Yakushiji. These buildings then as today were considered marvels of architectural elegance and traditional Japanese craftsmanship. One of the ancient pagodas still stands today, which is itself a testament to the great skill and dedication of its ancient builders. Even more surprising, though, is the fact that the same skills and dedication are very much in evidence today in the work of modern-day Japanese master carpenters. The Genius of Japanese Carpentry focuses on the work of these modern-day craftsmen who combine the timeless past with the living present in their everyday lives. What precisely is a Buddhist temple, what is a temple carpenter, and what relationship do they have to the traditional Japanese crafts of woodworking and carpentry in general? These are questions raised and answered by Prof Brown before taking up the subject that lies at the heart of this book which the reconstruction of the Yakushiji Picture Hall itself. In addition to photographs documenting the entire process, this book is remarkable for the author s set of original drawings, based on the plans of Japanese master carpenter Tsunekazu Nishioka, and for the insights which he is able to give us based on extensive interviews and conversations with all the carpenters and woodworkers involved in the project

HASH(0x914b3ad4) étoiles sur 5 Insightful journey into the world of Japanese carpentry 20 janvier 2014
Par Karl Bareis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Right from the first page the reader is transported into the life of the master builder. A clear departure from Western architecture, where design is the inspiration of an individual, Japanese tradition follows rules created by the forest; the way trees grow their strengths and the specific use for each material. Azby's personal journey through the difficult and demanding world of the apprentice woodworker allows the reader a unique view of the culture of wood going back to ancient times. Well worth keeping and sharing.

An excellent book. The author is able to capture the spirit of Japanese carpentry. I to was able to apprentice under a daiku. A bit on usual I admit but probably the best teacher I ever had

HASH(0x914b3ce4) étoiles sur 5 Five Stars for a beautiful book 2 octobre 2014
Par Stanti - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
This book is an amazing work that will appeal to anyone who has an appreciation of skilled craftsmanship. The Genius of Japanese Carpentry contains beautiful photographs and detailed drawings of Japanese woodworking and precise joinery. The main section of the book, Erection of the Picture Hall beautifully details a large scale, multi-man restoration project. Readers will feel as if they are right there,showered with wood chips among the smell of freshly hewn timber.

HASH(0x914b72dc) étoiles sur 5 An excellent overview for the layperson. 6 mars 2015
Par Harlan Kanoa Sheppard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I am not a carpenter by trade, though I have worked in construction. My father, however, was a carpenter.

I always found the concepts and rules of constructing buildings to be fascinating. A hardly, practical application of the physical sciences is necessary for the creation of buildings that stand the test of time. From that perspective, I have found traditional Japanese carpentry to straddle the line between science and art. The intricacies of their woodworking techniques are not well understood in the west.

This book was a pleasant glance into the practice of dedicated tradesmen from another land. I got to see some examples of joinery, and also the training and attitudes of the craftsmen. This was well worth the read and the asking price.
