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; Italian towns with beautiful squares; cave-dwellings of Andalusian villages; Adriatic towns with their main orientation to the sea.
Many of the 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 by experience, and they have many ideas to offer and warnings to give to today’s architecture.
