dot architects: Politics of Living
Based in Osaka, dot architects is an interdisciplinary practice with a portfolio that spans architecture, research, art, and more. This volume features five of the studio’s completed projects. Images which portray the projects in their current state are complemented by texts outlining the history and background of each structure and the surrounding town. As a whole, it gives a detailed insight into the properties which acutely reflect the “politics of living” – critical faculties needed to create small autonomous spaces through design, construction, and involvement, which in turn shapes the principle the architects describe in this book and adhere to in their daily practice.
