What is Co-dividuality? Post-individual Architecture, Shared Houses, and Other Stories of Openness in Japan

What is Co-dividuality? Post-individual Architecture, Shared Houses, and Other Stories of Openness in Japan

This book explores the concept of co-dividuality, an architecture that expresses a new response to joint living in the age of postindividualism, social media, and the sharing economy. The focus lies on current experimentation in Japanese architecture and presents thematic homes with shared spaces designed as a result of warm, simple, fun and contemporary design reflections. In addition to their private room, the co-tenants have large common areas where they can practice urban farming, create a start-up, cook together, or experience new spatial ergonomics. The book offers an overview not only on domestic space but also on projects characterized by a multifarious mix between public and private spheres. What Is Co-dividuality? reflects on how we might want to live tomorrow.

The book includes projects by Kengo Kuma, Kazuyo Sejima, Ryue Nishizawa, Shigeru Ban, Sou Fujimoto, Satoko Shinohara, Ayano Uchimura, Taichi Kuma, Junya Ishigami, Suppose Design, Naruse Inokuma, and Masuda + Otsubo, among others
