Linus Yng, a “master of architecture student at KTH, Stockholm” who lives in Tokyo has a superb Tokyo architecture/space resource at http://www.tokyo.parallellt.se – “not about the idea behind city so much as looking at the city” – Here, he has some interesting thoughts about a guerilla hedge in Shinjuku (from his site)
“Outside a flower shop in Shinjuku the boring sidewalk hedge has been attacked by plants.
Towards the cars the hedge is preserved, towards the pedestrians a richer and more varied environment. Of course the state of things could be prettier, maybe it is because of the season, maybe due to neglect. However the spirit of this urban intervention is full of promise.”
