House and Home in Modern Japan: Architecture, Domestic Space, and Bourgeois Culture, 1880-1930
by Jordan Sand
A house is a site, the bounds and focus of a community. It is also an artefact, a material extension of its occupants' lives. This book takes the Japanese house as site and as artefact and explores the spaces, commodities and conceptions of community associated with it in the modern era.

Really rich, and great sense of reading spaces and materials. But at almost five hundred pages...Really? The table of contents is a literary work itself, so I recommend approaching this book as a kind of choose your own adventure novel.
