Publisher Adp

ISBN 9784903348407

Idea Code 14188

Featuring more than 20 works by award-winning Japanese architect Koh Kitayama, this compact and eye-catching monograph covers his practice over a twelve-year period beginning in 2002. Interested in collective forms found in cities and how these are meant to support the activities of everyday life, Kitayama has explored transformations in residential districts in Tokyo in order to contemplate the renewal of its urban composition, comparing it to representative cities of the past. His goal is for architects to present a spatial model for the future with which society can identify, and he develops this through his own houses, residential complexes and integrated urban projects.
