The article discusses three projects by the Pritzker awarded architect Arata Isozaki: Incubation Process (1962), Mirage City (1992) and Solaris (2012). The projects are developed in three different periods for three different locations, and are intended by Isozaki as a way to interpret the effects produced by the ‘global tsunami’ on the urbanization process in the Far East. The architect evidences how, during the last fifty years, Asian cities have been the privileged place in which new urban forms, practices and techniques have been shaped due to unprecedented globalization conditions. Inquiring these places, and their reinterpretations through Isozaki’s work, is a way to questioning the contemporary cities, beyond the Asian context.
Keywords: Arata Isozaki; Asian city; urbanization processes
