From the introduction: "The affiliation between these two cities presumed by this book is hardly definitive, but offered up as simultaneously autobiographical and institutional. Our ambitions forTokyo from Vancouver have been simple: to document the academic culture of a foreign study program, UBC SoATokyo; conducted in the winter of 2004 by the School of Architecture from the University of British Columbia. Fifteen graduate students and three faculty members, joined by two local architects, set up studio for four months in Mori Building 25 at Ark Hills in Roppongi. This book is our collective journal-a record of what we made and thought. More than that, it presents the work of the architects and theorists who generously shared their work and time with us." Writings from: Fumihiko Maki; Takamitsu Azuma; Kengo Kuma; Masayuki Irie; Dana Buntrock; Mamiko Ishida; Sachiko Tanaka; Ryozo Umezawa; Akira Suzuki; Fumio Matsumoto; YasutakaYoshimura; Atsushi Aiba; Souhei Imamura; Bill Pechet; John Bass; George Wagner.
