It is a multifamily housing composed of five living units. Each units has two to three house-shaped compartments connected by stairs. Thus, one living unit is constituted from rooms and urban spaces in between them. This vision of Tokyo appears familiar and yet equally futuristic as light can enter unexpectedly from between houses or one can walk on neighbors' roofs.
Most like Tokyo, and yet, a Tokyo that could have never existed.
