Abstract

The domestic qualities that Tokyo offers to accommodate urban nomadism are found not only at the interior scale of the dividual space studied in Part I, but also in urban exterior spaces. This paper examines the functional features of these exterior spaces, created by the aggregation of ‘zakkyo buildings’. Both cases, interior and exterior are classified as ’content space’ due to their commonalities. ‘Content space’ is presented as a valid design paradigm that, however, must be considered within its specific socio-cultural context, examined in this paper using the theory of liminality.
