Book review

The work of Riken Yamamoto, one of Japan s leading architects, is of outstanding importance in urban design; his work seeks to integrate society and be a cohesive force for contemporary living. Riken Yamamoto: How to Make a City focuses on Yamamoto s long-standing engagement with the concept of city and the modern demands of urban life, given increasing population. Published to accompany the exhibition at the Architecture Gallery Lucerne, this is a selection of recent projects such as The Circle at Zurich Airport, a project originating from a competition Yamamoto won in 2009. The multifunctional building complex, where internal construction adapts medieval city structures into a modern form, is based on his research focusing on the diverse needs of urban communal living space. Yamamoto s architecture is cutting edge, exploring exciting and intriguing possibilities for aesthetic and sustainable urban design for the 21st century. Featuring an interview by Hubertus Adam with Kees Christiaanse, Hiromi Hosoya and Riken Yamamoto.
