Architects in Japan have become a new guard for modern architecture, releasing innovative, functional, and aesthetic designs that are lauded around the world. Born from traditional architecture in Japan, the country readily took over the simplicity and purity of modern architecture the world was challenged to incorporate in the 20th century.
