Tokyo: Portraits And Fictions


An exemplary textual guide to Tokyo, presented by French architect and writer Manuel Tardits, a long-time resident of the Japanese capital, this book is useful to both the amateur or the professional architect or planner. It offers insight by way of academic curiosity, historical anecdotes, cultural multiplicities and incomprehensibilities, anthropological distractions, and confrontations with the sheer density of urban data for which the metropolis is infamous. Illustrated by both architect Stéphane Lagré and artist Nobumasa Takahashi, it lends a fascinating new look at Japanese and urban culture through the context of this sometimes bewildering and mystical city.
