The theory of tradition in Yoshiro Taniguchi’s written works in the 1950s



It was confirmed that the characteristic of Yoshiro Taniguchi’s theory of tradition in the 1950s was that rationalistic and romantic understanding coexisted. Furthermore, as a detail of rational way, it can be pointed out that the understanding formed in the 1930s and the grasp of tradition by space are the basic elements, and understanding tradition through the natural features and climate was most often seen throughout the target period.

From people’s point of view, the aesthetic elements as the Japanese alcove found in private houses were sought in public spaces.
