These 10 volumes of Villages and Towns series are
the result of 10 years of preparation by Yukio Futagawa.
White washed houses and streets of villages on Aegean Islands;
baroque decorations on walls of farm houses amongst the Alps;
Italian towns with beautiful squares; cave-dwellings of Andalusian villages;
Adriatic towns with their main orientation to the Sea.
Many of villages and towns introduced in this series have been forgotten for centuries,
being kept undisturbed by modern progress. They are rare and precious architectural specimens.
Spaces and forms which make up these villages and towns are
the result of ages of constant improvements
and they have many ideas to offer and warnings to give to today’s architecture
although some of them have disappeared in these 40 years.
