Methodology behind traditonal japanese house proportions
February 29, 2004 7:11 AM Subscribe
I am working on a house project and feel it would benefit from the quietness and openness I've seen in traditional japanese houses. I understand that their proportions were based on the size of tatamis, both in plan and in section. Does anybody know where I can see a graphic explanation / example of this? A good online collection of traditional japanese interiors and gardens would be much welcome as well.

Actually, modern japanese interiors and gardens would probably be enlightening as well.
