In modern Japanese cities, the home is in an introverted sanctuary in many regards. Social interactions, in the wider sense, mainly take place in public spaces. By rethinking residential typologies, and challenging the boundaries of privacy to a level in which we can co-live comfortably, we can facilitate ways of sharing and interacting to bring mutual benefits to everyone involved, socially, economically and environmentally, which will, in the end, enrich the quality of our daily lifestyles. Architectural design processes tend to be rather closed in many cases, and there always seems to be a clear distinction in role between the architect and the users. Interactive architecture, on the other hand, requires users to be involved not just from the design phase but also in the execution; together with the architect, users themselves take part in maintenance, or organizations of events and activities taking place within. In interactive architecture, the role of the architect does not end at completion.

In this lecture we will be introducing four projects, ranging in scale from small to big, to show how we approach interactivity through our practice, and how residents and local communities can be engaged through architectural planning.
