dc.description.abstract This paper examines the impact of western architec- ture on Japan in the 1920s and 1930s with reference to both public and domestic buildings and their interiors. The simple model of Japan submitting to overseas 'influence' is avoided; rather, it is suggested that the Japanese made conscious design choices from the range of 'modern' European styles avail- able. European histories of the modern movement in Japan are scrutinized, particularly the privileging of German architectural models. A case is made for the re-emphasis of French Art Deco modes as popular for middle- and upper-class interior design.
