About the Exhibition
Some Ideas on Living in London and Tokyo by Stephen Taylor and Ryue Nishizawa marks the first North American presentation of residential projects by architects Taylor and Nishizawa and reveals their distinctive solutions to the challenges of building homes in existing dense urban fabrics. London and Tokyo provide particularly relevant ground for case studies not only due to the scale and complexity of their respective built environments, but especially for the way in which their increasing densities call for a redefinition of urban living. While facing similar issues related to growth, the two cities occupy cultural contexts in which themes of proximity, privacy, community, and public space take on different meanings and require distinct solutions.
The exhibition continues until 26 October 2008. For a more detailed description please read the press release.
