Abstract

What is Wabi Sabi? The Japanese view of life embraced a simple aesthetic that grew stronger as inessentials were eliminated and trimmed away. Tadao Ando (architect). This learning module explores the concept of Wabi Sabi through a picture book, Wabi Sabi by Mark Reibstein with artwork by Ed Young. It combines hiragana, haiku and beautiful images to explain what Wabi Sabi is.
