This work examines built forms which, by actively celebrating a particular place, time or pattern of material being, seem able in a number of ways to enhance our experience of existence.
In addition to highlighting the transcultural human benefits of such environments, Place, Time and Being in Japanese Architecture also illustrates generally applicable strategies for revealing these universal parameters in built forms. It is suggested that greater use of such techniques could not only help to sustain environmental and cultural identities against the homogenizing effects of globalization, but can also heighten our appreciation of the peculiar condition 'being here now.'

I guess "Being" is the more explored one. Nothing revolutionary is written here but a great extent of comparisons and cases let you appreciate some of contemporary japanese architects and how they are connected to the past.
F.L.Wright is also overall under the pages and sometimes emerges.
I read it with pleasure and satisfaction that I suggest it.
I in fact, keep near to look at it again sometime.
