Product Description


The building that is the subject of this illustrated text constitutes the first material expression of Kazuyo Sejima's studies on metropolitan housing, studies which proceed from the idea that not all subsidized housing is the same. Starting from a standard public apartment programme, the confrontation between a strictly modulated structure and a random disposition of the different rooms, or between the length of the building and the reduction of its built depth, also elicits a confrontation between habitable space and the surrounding landscape, and between the individual and the family unit. This title consists of two volumes: one explains the building and the other is a little book containing the metropolitan housing studies by Kazuyo Sejima. A Spanish language version of this title is also available, ISBN 84-89698-99-6.

This was an excellent buy. This book contains one of the most beautiful house project in the contemprary scenario. was wrote in Japanese and English, and contains detailed plans and very goood pictures. This package contains instead other mini book with other projects of sejima about social houing like a catalog.
The best of all, the price, a masterpiece under the 20.
Este libro ha sido lo ultimo que he comprado en arquitectura y tengo que decir que es una compra excelente. Contiene uno de los proyectos de vivienda contemporanea mas interesantes. Esta en japones y en ingles, lleva en el interior planos detallados y muchas fotografias. Este libro ademas viene con otro mini librito donde aparecen otros proyectos de sejima realacionados con vivienda social. Una muy buena compra.
