JA100: Looking Back the 60 Years, JA 60th Anniversary

From the publisher: This issue of JA (Japan Architect) celebrates the 60th anniversary of the magazine which started as a monthly English publication on architecture in Japan. It is also the 100th edition since it became a quarterly bilingual magazine. JA 100 gives a comprehensive view of all the issues published in its 60 years of history.

Architects from around the world and from Japan contributed comments on their experiences with JA which has provided high-quality selection of Japanese architecture starting when there was not many other forms of information to overseas up until today when there are many different ways of communication. We invite our readers to look back at the magazine's history and imagine the future of Japanese architecture.
