Abstract

The contribution aims to analyze the method and the dissemination of new stylistic changes in architecture during the Meiji period with particular attention to the works built in Tokyo. Through the study of the new methodological guidelines adopted in Japan in the late nineteenth century, a new path of the history of the architecture and conservation starts. Cultural revolutions are related to large urban, and therefore social, transformations. The contribution aims to analyze these innovations that have had important implications on the development of the architecture in Japan. The main topic will concern the restoration and reconstruction of existing works created during the Meiji period. The contribution will connect these important stylistic innovations to the individual cultural realities of the architects who worked in Japan in the late nineteenth century. The contribution aims to reconstruct a chapter of the history whose origins need to be found within the dialogue between the Western and Eastern culture. It can be seen as the first phenomenon of cultural globalization which has encouraged the development of different cultures with important results even in the West. In this context, we can note the influence that the Japanese culture has had on some architects of the first half of the twentieth century: Frank Lloyd Wright (American), Bruno Taut (Germany) and Carlo Scarpa (Italian).
