The Japanese Get It
Yukitoshi Nagashima, a Japanese architecture student, decided to do his thesis on the architecture of the homeless. He discovered a whole world of nuance in their crude encampmants. He has now published a book: "Danboru House" (Cardboard box houses), put out last month by Poplar Publishing. And his years among the homeless resulted in a personal life change too: he's become a newspaper reporter. Asahi Shimbun reports.
