Some Ideas on Living in London and Tokyo: Stephen Taylor and Ryue Nishizawa

Publication, 14 May 2008

Some Ideas on Living in London and Tokyo presents architectural projects by Stephen Taylor and Ryue Nishizawa that reflect new thinking on living in contemporary cities. Taylor and Nishizawa’s residential projects both respect and respond to the particular cultural environments of London and Tokyo, and demonstrate the importance of a clear understanding of place in order to develop solutions that are specific to their context. Their designs challenge conventional norms and offer approaches that simultaneously shape the life of the resident and the face of the city.

Texts by Giovanna Borasi and Peter Allison. Interview of Stephen Taylor and Ryue Nishizawa by Giovanna Borasi. Foreword by Mirko Zardini. Designed by Lars Müller and Séverine Mailler.

Softcover, 176 pages. Published in English and in French. Co-published with Lars Müller Publishers.
