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.
