Abstract

In the metropolis of Eastern Asia a new category of space is unfolding: dividual space. Consisting of commercial settings that are publicly used as private domestic environments, prices are comparatively low enough to turn these spaces into an integral part of public life. This paper takes the city of Tokyo as a study field to document the emergence of dividual space and to identify its main spatial characteristics.
