Notes on a place pending change, the houses are occupying this site waiting for a road project to start.
Here along orbital road number 7, between the buildings, houses only exist while waiting for a road to pass through. The two buildings form a monument over something that might happen. The houses covering the ground must be easy to tear down, only light materials easy to take apart may be used for the construction, wood or steel frames. No concrete.
On the other hand, this kind of planned development can catch pockets of older time. Since the future is even more uncertain than usual in Tokyo, no new houses or buildings happen. History is maybe not preserved but just present.
Further along the same path the future sidewalk continues between houses, but with different atmosphere.
