The book reconsiders the theme of living in a city by exploring new approaches that reveal a different way of integrating projects into the existing city. Due to their scale, extensive built environment, and efforts to grow the city from within, London and Tokyo face similar urban development issues but occupy cultural contexts in which themes of proximity, privacy, community, and public space take on different meanings and require distinct solutions. The housing projects of Nishizawa and Taylor show how inhabitants can live in a house, and, at the same time, enlarge the scale of their living to the neighbourhood and the city. They introduce, within the specificity of their cultures and philosophies, the idea that a housing project is a way of contributing to the atmosphere, the character and the life of the city. The book contains statements by Nishizawa and Taylor framing their approaches and ideas, accompanied by images and explanation of their projects and a discussion between them, as well as essays by Giovanna Borasi focusing on the relevance of this topic today, and by Peter Allison framing the architect’s approaches in a historical perspective and within the two cultures.
