    Sample spreads from upcoming book. In the city landscape, space is interpreted by experience, previous encounters and knowledge; each person has a different, individual impression of what space is, or can be. Boundaries, traditions and etiquette are realised through unspoken narratives around the cities in Japan. The old is patch-worked into the new in the everyday experience of its cities, a past and future often occupying the same space. The urban environment is dense and space is made to work hard, in every sense. This book looks at the edges of city space; the liminal relationships between object and place, user and city, within three different cities in Japan. The implied & experienced boundaries are subtle, sometimes momentary, sometimes imagined, but there is always a sense of outside and inside, whether that’s to do with reading, context or knowledge. The images shown are an extract from a forthcoming book titled ‘outside, looking in’ - part of a body of research looking at how we engage, communicate, define and discuss space in the city. As part of a series of case studies, publications, exercises and participatory workshops this body of design research, ‘a question of space’, hopes to identity functional and usable methods of translating perceptions for application in architectural and design practice.
