A+U November 2021 Special Issue Infraordinary Tokyo: The Right To The City
This special issue empowers and encourages the reader to choose paths, as if walking through the city, an intellectual dérive. Rather than presenting a book of pictures, its strategy provides a basic, research-driven bibliography to assist the further exploration of ideas. Opening with an introduction by Darko Radović, it goes on to closely examine the multifaceted Tokyo metropolis from an array of perspectives and themes. These include shared housing, public bathhouses, pseudo-public space, urban spectacle, infills and alleyways, graffiti and street art, stacking historical times, hidden poverty, and more. Radović, Kengo Kuma, and Hidenobu Jinnai discuss the city’s urban DNA.
