Some Ideas on Living in London and Tokyo

Taylor, Stephen; Nishizawa, Ryue Author

9783037781500: Some Ideas on Living in London and Tokyo

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 and a preface by Mirko Zardini.

 

Cet ouvrage considère le vivre en milieu urbain en explorant de nouvelles approches pour intégrer des projets de construction d’habitations au sein de la ville existante. Tokyo et Londres sont confrontées à des problèmes de développement comparables, étant donné leur taille, leur urbanisation excessive et leurs efforts pour se développer au coeur même de la ville. Toutefois, les contextes culturels sont différents, les notions de voisinage, l’espace privé et public, la collectivité n’ont pas la même signification et requièrent des solutions différenciées.

Les projets des deux architectes japonais et britannique Ryue Nishizawa et Stephen Taylor montrent comment des habitants peuvent vivre dans leur maison, tout en élargissant leur espace de vie à l’échelle de leur environnement immédiat et de la ville. Nishizawa et Taylor, chacun avec ses spécificités culturelles et philosophiques, indiquent comment un projet d’habitation peut contribuer à l’atmosphère, au caractère et à la vie de la ville. Ils développent leur démarche et leurs idées au cours d’un dialogue et dans de courtes déclarations, accompagnées par des photos et des explications  sur leurs projets. Giovanna Borasi constate la pertinence du sujet pour notre époque dans un essai éclairant, et Peter Allison met en perspective historique et culturelle la démarche des deux architectes.
