The Field Guide to Indoor Urbanism calls for a shift in environmental thinking, designing for exchanges between architecture and the city that are both outside-in and inside-out. The concept of indoor urbanism merges the opposing scales of urbanism and interiors, prompting architecture’s borders to recede. 

The book is an
analogue to walking through three cities: New York, Rome, and Tokyo. Through design projects, drawings, essays, and conversations, each city demonstrates its own form of indoor urbanism. An essential question is raised: in the face of the climate crisis, what is architecture’s capacity to change?
