Tokyo-Zurich: New Housing Forms

30' (GER)
Tokyo with its 36 million inhabitants and Zurich with only 400,000 have one thing in common: Both are looking for new forms of compacted construction.

Riken Yamamoto, architect of the 'Circle' at Zurich Airport, has built a settlement in Tokyo to promote contact between residents. Ryue Nishizawa or the architect team Bow Wow demonstrate in Tokyo how small areas can be maximized. When it comes to new housing forms, the Japanese architects also familiarize themselves with Zurich, which has made a name for itself internationally in recent years. The Zurich architect Andreas Hofer, who plays a major role in pioneering buildings in Zurich, can hardly save himself from inquiries.
