The city is, an assemblage of a multitude of elements. And if we think architecture as that kind of collection, not as single building, there seems to be a potential towards a shift in the relationship between architecture and the city. Then if architects design building with such attitude, architecture would contribute much to create better urban environment.
We feature such a trend in architecture within the framework of collective forms and present the endeavors of 14 Japanese architects with a focus on the process of design. We also included two interviews with Fumihiko Maki & Hiroshi Hara
