Yakisugi House (Charcoal House), a residence located in Nagano, Japan designed by Japanese architect Terunobu Fujimori and photographed by Edmund Sumner / The building is clad in charred cedar that was smoked in eight-metre lengths. Due to the length of timber used, the material warped during this process and the resulting gaps in the facade are filled with plaster. (via dezeen)

  1. traditional timber framing, japanese or english or whatever, is such a beautiful modular medium for building. architects are always trying to improve on it rather than learn it. look at katsura or ise if you want proof.
