The second volume in the ‘Architecture Reading Aid’ series is dedicated to Tokyo, opening up the world’s largest and densest metropolis to any traveller who loves architecture. Unlike a standard architectural guide, however, this handy little booklet goes beyond the well-known buildings and offers insight into the city through numerous examples of characteristic urban spaces. This cross-section of Tokyo’s everyday life includes train station junctions, low residential neighbourhoods, traditional bathhouses, and restaurants, while the clear drawings, photos, and short texts enable a deeper understanding of the city as an architectural representation of its urban landscape and culture.
