Metabolism Talks (japan, hans ulrich obrist, rem koolhaas, metabolism). Wallpaper sat down with Koolhaas and Obrist to take about the genesis of the book and what Metabolist architecture means today. This feels like a very personal, intense project. Hans Ulrich Obrist: I knew about Metabolism through Rem, from the first day we met, when we did the ’Cities on the Move’ exhibition - it was a very hectic day and he needed to catch a plane to Hong Kong, so he said it would be better not to discuss Asia in Rotterdam, but in Hong Kong.

Querlaca
Going into this book I knew very little about the metabolist movement in architecture. I found that the format of quickly alternating interviews and history pieces kept me engaged and interested as a reader. Well-chosen photos and graphics illustrate the text tastefully. The interviews with metabolist architects were great, and managed to not only record the important history and facts about metabolist architecture, but also gave insight into the personal lives, career development, and group dynamic of these Japanese architects who all contributed to the movement in different ways.

As a designer I can relate to the metabolist's desire for architecture to play a role in solving the many complex problems in a rapidly changing world. Only by working together to advance the architecture profession in Japan were they able to achieve some level of success. With the focus today so much on the individuality of each famous designer, it is refreshing to read about this not-so-distant movement that happened because of a group of individuals working toward a common way of thinking. I have not come across any other books that describe the process of a movement taking shape quite like this book does. It goes to great lengths to provide as many viewpoints as possible from the people who were there when it happened. It is an architecture book that is also about how these architects interacted with their world to promote their vision.

It feels like a large amount of respect and care went into the making of this book. Rem Koolhaas and Hans Ulrich Obrist clearly knew that the metabolist movement in architecture has tremendous historical importance and a serious lack of recorded historical documentation. They did a wonderful job compiling and presenting all the information in this book!

If its a topic of minimalism, micro-living, or have a great interest to Japanese architecture, this is the perfect book! I personally used this book to help me study and find inspiration for my thesis. And believe me, this book gave lots of inspiration, precedent studies/analysis, and helpful information that progressed my studies. Architects student or not, this books holds lots of historic information that both benefit a better understanding of the what has been done and what is being improved or used today. The Nagakin Capsule Hotel is just one of the buildings that initiated the whole micro-living and providing a better understanding of "time" and "space" really means to human proportions. I highly recommended it!

This book is great to have. It offers information about metabolism that just wasn't known before. Also a more personal read because of the interview format. Since it is a product of AMO, always great graphics and such.

In this book we will found the rise of an entire city thru the designer's work.
When the nuclear bombs dropped on the Japanese cities had to start building cities from scratch.
This book describes the processes of designers to design solutions to this tragedy.

Everything that Taschen Publishes is fantastic! This is a beautifully designed volume on the subject of metabolist architecture. Anyone can pick up this book and get wrapped up in its illustrations and diagrams.
Project Japan it`s a very complete investigation on Japanese metabolism movement, the book is a very inspiring piece of architectural work, and it edition is genius, as only Rem Koolhaas and his work group can do it. Excellent, excellent book
