Miniseries 5: Architecture as Another Nature

Contemporary cities are not built according to a single idea or for a single purpose. Cities for people to live in are constructed according to many overlapping principles and systems. Tokyo possesses an untidy, invisible order. In Miniseries 5, Itsuko Hasegawa aims to capture the living essence of this city, asserting that architecture ought to be designed so that it retains a latent quality of the site—in other words that “architecture ought to be a second manifestation of nature.”
