Part of the CCA's exploration of key issues in contemporary architecture with a specific focus on urban, social, and environmental concerns, Some Ideas considers a vital issue for today's society, namely, the question of how to create viable new models for living in increasingly dense urban environments. The projects of the British architect Stephen Taylor and the Japanese architect Ryue Nishizawa 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. This publication marks an important contribution to ongoing research in the field, and offers new reflections on how we can perceive, engage, and inhabit the contemporary city. The book features evocative images of the architects' projects, including site models and installations, alongside comments by Nishizawa and Taylor on individual projects.
