Broken is Beautiful: The Japanese Tradition That Makes Broken Things Even Better than Brand New

Broken is Beautiful: The Japanese Tradition That Makes Broken Things Even Better than Brand New

It is a fact of life that buildings, as they age, inevitably fall apart. We Americans are not quite comfortable with this. We like everything to be shiny and new: we like all our buildings and our interior finishes to have the smooth sameness of youth. But the Japanese have developed a way of dealing with this. They have, in fact, embraced the idea that sometimes fixing broken things can make them even better and more beautiful than when they were new.
