Title :The Rapid Spread of Modern Buildings and the Simplification of Planning Method in Postwar Okinawa
Authors :Ogura, Nobuyuki
Issue Date :2004
Abstract :The aim of this paper is to clarify how local architects, most of them trained at a technical college, adapted to the vast demands of concrete buildings, which required completely new construction methods, that were introduced by U.S. engineers in a short period of time after World War II. Though the planning and construction of buildings on military bases strictly followed U.S. specifications, local buildings were produced in accordance with local-government building codes based on those of mainland Japan. This paper shows the conditions under which architects designed in the early stages of the spread of concrete buildings in Okinawa.
