About the Author

Zhongjie Lin is an Assistant Professor of Architecture and Urban Design at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.


"A significant contribution to our understanding of the theory and practice of the movement" - Planning Perspectives

"The book with an introduction by Arata Isozaki is [a] valuable one"
- Built Environment (Newsletter for Centre for Built Environment, Kolkata, India)

"Together with the recent fascinating documentary and oral-history study by Rem Koolhaas, Kenzo Tange and the Metabolist Movement: Urban Utopias of Modern Japan (2010) by Zhongjie Lin has filled a significant gap on the subject of the postwar metropolis, providing a fresh analysis of mid-twentieth-century Japanese urban design and architecture- and updating the chapters contained on the subject in my own The Making of a Modern Japanese Architecture: 1868 to the Present."

- David B. Stewart, Tokyo Institute of Technology
