past and present wooden house in Japan

past and present wooden house in Japan

The left side is the structure of a late Japanese wooden house.

Can you guess the age of the opposite nostalgic part? It’s a model of the period around 1980.

Early in the afternoon of a hot and humid day, the model shows me a definite proof of the day’s discomfort index.

I like the lightness of fusumas and shojis (Japanese sliding doors made by wood and paper), the sensible consideration to take care of other people in a space.

But without proper protection or treatment, it’s just too hot in summer and too cold in winter.

How can we combine lightness and comfort?
