Some of Japan's most recognizable, globally influential designs are traced to their origins in a mentor's earlier experiments. The diverse backgrounds of the scholars and engineers who contributed to u003ciu003eStructured Lineagesu003c/iu003e inform the book's uniquely international perspective on the spirit of creativity and cooperation that arose in Japan in the latter half of the 20th century and persists in Japanese architectural practices to this day.u003c/pu003e
