The house Takamitsu Azuma built, in a 20-square-meter plot in 1966, was considered, since the moment of its creation, a symbol of modern life.
The Tower House was built by Takamitsu Azuma in the city of Tokyo in 1966. In just twenty square meters, the construction thinks about and resolves problems of architecture and family cohabitation. It’s structured from a central spiral cement staircase that gives an impression of lightness at the same time it works as a core from which all the rooms are positioned on top of one another. Narrated by Azuma’s daughter, who has lived there since her childhood and witnessed the changes in the house and its surroundings, Tower House describes how the space we inhabit can modify our lives and customs; from finding the perfect spot to hang the coats to knowing how to put our foot on the steps to let people know we’re going from one room to another.
