DESCRIPTION

Renowned Japanese master builder and Zen teacher Paul Discoe discusses the intersection of Buddhism and architecture in his practice. Discoe studied architecture as a Buddhist temple builder in Kyoto, Japan, for five years during the 1970s. Upon returning to the United States, he founded Joinery Structures to continue pursuing his passion for Asian architecture. By personally training his team in Japanese techniques, Discoe has helped introduce Asian architecture to a much broader audience.
