Tokyo Metabolizing


Sold Out

Originating from Japan in 1960, and now influential globally, the Metabolist movement proposed that cities can be metabolized, like machines – growing wildly, and shedding their functional components. Produced in accompaniment to the Japan pavilion at the 2010 Venice Biennale, Tokyo Metabolizing presents an analysis of the city's architectural development from a Metabolist perspective, mainly through the work and writings of Yoshiharu Tsukamoto and Ryue Nishizawa, both at the cutting edge of contemporary Japanese architecture. Thanks to TOTO Publishing (Tokyo).
