Frank Lloyd Wright counted Japanese art and architecture as one of his five influences. Mies van der Rohe, who joins Wright as one of the 20th century's greatest architects, hardly mentioned it. Yet the revolutionary work of both takes inspiration from Japanese teahouses, gardens and such revered Asian texts as Lao-tzu's Tao Te Ching. In Wright's work, you can find Japan around every corner; Mies expresses Japan in a much more subtle yet fascinating way. Using many of his photographs, photographer and architectural commentator Larry Simon shares how each of these architects express time-honored ideas and textures of another world in modern designs from the Western world in which they lived.
