Sharing Tokyo is a collection of essays and drawings on the theme of sharing the urban space of Tokyo.

The book questions how "artifice" and the "social world" can be mutually and constructively integrated so that the contemporary urban space can be shared by all. A variety of innovative practices are presented by a diverse group of contributors including renowned scholars, architects, urbanists, and photographers from Japan and the US, and the research team at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
While the discourses and architectural works presented deal with the specificity of Tokyo, they were carefully selected to formulate together a collection of insights, new perspectives, and speculative experiments in urbanism and architecture that can also be used in other contexts.
