“In a time where so much architecture radiates a disturbing separateness, Jerde’s work, filled with optimism, the best of high art and popular culture, and sheer joie de vivre “is a true contribution.”
—Richard Koshalek, President Art Center College of Design

This book tells the story of the unlikely collaboration of a daring Japanese real estate developer and a freewheeling American architect in the making of the largest private real estate development in Japan, Canal City Hakata. Uniquely contextual yet defiantly flamboyant, Canal City shows what can happen when two cultures joyfully collide.
