“...It contained seven objects. The slender fluted bone, surely formed for flight, surely from the wing of some large bird. Three archaic circuitboards, faced with mazes of gold. A smooth white sphere of baked clay. An age-blackened fragment of lace. A fingerlength segment of what she assumed was bone from a human wrist, grayish white, inset smoothly with the silicon shaft of a small instrument that must once have ridden flush with the surface of the skin - but the thing’s face was seared and blackened.”
William Gibson, “Count Zero”, 1986

Eleventh issue from 1987 of this now classic architectural series, the great GA Houses from Tokyo, Japan.
One of the finest architecture journal series ever published, GA Houses extends from the famous GA (Global Architecture) journal series, presented by the highly esteemed publishing house that also published the GA, GA Document, and GI (Global Interior) architectural publications.
Each issue of GA Houses highlights a selection of residential architectural projects by renowned international architects.
Beautiful architectural photography of residential building interiors, exteriors and architectural details, along with texts (mostly in Japanese) and floor-plans/elevation drawings make up the profiles on each featured building or residential environment. The visual generosity of these handsomely designed and printed journals make them a treasure for any architecture or interior design enthusiast or collector.
