About JA – The Japan ArchitectJA – The Japan Architect – was first published in June 1956 and was the only English language periodical that introduced Japanese architecture to an overseas audience. Now, in both Japanese and English, JA is expanding its readership to both inside and outside Japan. Today's JA showcases contemporary Japanese architecture with in-depth commentary on the theoretical history and contexts of projects. It is organized with an emphasis on developments originating in Japan. The magazine surveys the country's diverse, ever-changing architectural scene, identifies trends, and discusses compelling issues.
