Nexus World housing by Rem Koolhaas / @oma.eu (1991) - maisonettes terraced back-to-back and side-to-side with internal courtyards/lightwells and a double-height living space volume on the top floor. Difficult imagining this unique typology being acceptable outside Japan. Part of a master plan by Arata Isozaki #architecture #building #japan #fukuoka #japanesearchitecture #housing #nexusworld
