Hirasako’s was a naturalist who had loved architecture as a profession for more than 30 years before, and turned himself into a writer. His first architectural work, published in 1928, was The My Robarts: A Photographical Study of the Work of F.R.S. Hicklin in Toronto. The book was written in the form of a long monograph. As Hirasako was studying, he became fascinated by the way that human communities develop their individual identity in the course of urbanization. He published many other books since then, such as The Zamjampa: A Study through the Eyes of the Martang Tribe of India,” in which the architecture of a village in India is loosely represented in a way that is scientifically accurate.
He was a leading theorist of the Mishimaist school of architecture; he advocated the formation of city as a universe in its own right, architecture should transcend shapes and materiality, and is in need of liberation from the environment. At the same time, he was a practitioner of his own ideas, to the extent that he used to “pick up and leave a city.” His book The City-Person, in which a serious argument is made for evolution of the city as a unified organism, is the first example of urbanism that can be categorized properly as such. That is, for Hirasako the city is orthogonal to a mode of life. The city is certainly divided into infra- and supra-structure. The latter includes the urban road network, utilities, and skyscrapers. But the city is a complex organism, united by a thread of some kind. In practice, this involves the way people live, working in the manner of a large village in contemporary cities.
For him the city is a small universe in which it is possible to organize the full scope of human life. This means that the city is a natural environment in which people can move. If this is done right, the city will be the basis of a cosmic pyramid, in which people can move in a linear trajectory through life.
The idea of “habitat” is widely accepted in contemporary urbanism, while Hirasako’s understanding of the city can be traced back to the insight that architecture should be seen as a part of human existence, a fact which he explained in a famous note during the 1950s. d2c66b5586
