In Nihonbashi, a business district of Tokyo named for an old, beautiful bridge that has been obscured by an expressway, it is very difficult for a foreigner to get cash. When I was in Tokyo last week to give a talk, the first two ATM machines I tried refused to cooperate with my American debit cards. The third one worked, giving me large, beautifully designed ¥10,000 bills featuring a dot portrait of a somewhat glum Yukichi Fukuzawa, scholar and founder of Keio University.

The Future Book was meant to be interactive, moving, alive. Its pages were supposed to be lush with whirling doodads, responsive, hands-on. The old paperback Zork choose-your-own-adventures were just the start. The Future Book would change depending on where you were, how you were feeling. It would incorporate your very environment into its story—the name of the coffee shop you were sitting at, your best friend’s birthday. It would be sly, maybe a little creepy. Definitely programmable. Ulysses would extend indefinitely in any direction you wanted to explore; just tap and some unique, mega-mind-blowing sui generis path of Joycean machine-learned words would wend itself out before your very eyes.

studio velocity embarked on the design of the kowa apartments with the aim of rebuilding a housing complex in mihama, a seaside town on the southern tip of a peninsula in japan’s aichi prefecture. as the site’s pre-existing, 1950s-era apartment building was facing such issues as structural failure and decline in occupation, the studio resolved to replace the unusable structure with an open, friendly complex of spaces for multi-generational families. while the number of apartments was reduced in the new plan, an ambiguous boundary between public and private spaces promotes engagement between neighbors.
