Abstract

This paper approaches the Japanese "one-room mansion" and attempts to interpret it as a product of social, cultural and historical developments. In doing so, it questions the basic division between the regional and the global and proposes the examination of architectural and building cultures as the result of processes such as hybridisation, indigenisation and translation. The paper argues that the 'one-room mansion" illustrates the complex and ongoing interactions between the global and the local under conditions of globalisation. These interactions result in a way to build and to live that expresses multiple identities; yet it is decisively local.
