Hitoshi Abe: Informality (October 29, 2014)

Hitoshi Abe describes his interest in designing informality: places that accomodate multiple functions flexibly and encourage individual, physical responses. He argues that this non-specific, non-coercive informal architecture is often realized in corridors, and uses this theme to review his own work, from the Miyagi Stadium (2000), to the renovation of the 3M headquarters in Minnesota (2013).
