21st Century Tokyo is a fascinating guide to the city through its contemporary architecture.

Authors Julian Worrall and Erez Golani Solomon present eighty-three buildings, from world-renowned projects such as Herzog & de Meuron's Prada building and FOA's spectacular Yokohama International Passenger Terminal, to quirky private houses and soaring office towers of glass and steel. Alongside Western architects, who have built some of their most outstanding projects in Tokyo, the authors showcase recent works of celebrated Japanese architects, including Tadao Ando, Toyo Ito, Fumihiko Maki, and Kenzo Tange. Incisive essays introduce each building not just from an architectural perspective, but also as part of the social, cultural, and political tapestry of the city, creating a full and fascinating portrait of the metropolis.

The book is divided into seven easy-to-navigate chapters, each covering a different Tokyo district, with detailed maps and access information, and illustrated throughout with stunning black-and-white photography by Joshua Lieberman. This is an indispensable guidebook for the professional architect, the sightseer, or anyone with an interest in contemporary Japan.

Tokyo—one of the most innovative and forward-thinking cities in the world, and nowhere is this more evident than in its modern architecture. Eighty-three of the city's latest buildings are gathered in these pages and introduced not just from an architectural perspective but as part of the social, cultural, and political tapestry of the city. With stunning black-and-white photography spotlighting a wide range of projects, from the monumental masterpieces of famous architects to the everyday buildings often overlooked, this is a full and fascinating overview of the architectural landscape of twenty-first-century Tokyo.
