This issue brings forward the work of six architectural practices, each of which provides a statement on the meaning of life, place, and form. Guest editor Go Hasegawa belongs to the same generation as these offices, who all share a similar attitude towards the house and its relationship to the world beyond. In her essay, Giovanna Borasi discusses the evolving concept of lifecycle and work, new models of co-living, and a perceived misalignment between new societal needs and the architecture that accommodates them. The featured practices are: 6a architects (London), Vector Architects (Beijing), MOS (New York), adamo-faiden (Buenos Aires), and HARQUITECTES (Barcelona).
