Rooms You May Have Missed reclaims the significance of inhabitation and is for that reason a collection of domestic spaces—entry porticos, kitchens, bedrooms, closets, dining rooms, courtyards, gardens, vestibules, living rooms, offices, dens, and washrooms—as reinvented in the work of two very different architects: Umberto Riva in Milan and Bijoy Jain in Mumbai.
Common to their practices is a genuine concern for the details that support living in and our common rituals of waking, bathing, eating, entertaining, and sleeping. Together, they point to other paths—modest and particular, but also ambitions and resonant–toward conceiving and making architecture today.
