Book Review: Some Ideas On Living In London and Tokyo - Steven Taylor and Ryue Nishizawa
Some Ideas on Living in London and Tokyo is an excellent juxtaposition of the work of two outstanding contemporary architects. It presents a series of residential projects designed by Ryue Nishizawa - one of the founding partners of the Pritzker Prize winning firm Sanaa - followed by a series of projects by London based architect Stephen Taylor.
The beauty of this publication by the Canadian Center for Architecture and Lars Muller Publishers is that it presents each design as a process. It follows the buildings from early conceptual models, sketches, renderings, and developed drawings through to images of the built conclusions. It demonstrates that great architecture is not an isolate vision by rather is a product of hundreds of iterations of a design. An idea is massaged and altered slowly through experimentation before it evolves into it's elegant and simple resolution.
