Visualogue|29. An Alternate Present|Reda Sejini

Back on the road again, the visualogue travels this month to Dhahran to deliver the 4th installment in a series of lectures on architecture in Japan at KFUPM’s College of Environmental Design (urbanphenomena’s partners’ alma mata). This time we focus on the city of Tokyo, and how it has transformed from metropolis to megalopolis, the presentation will introduce the city’s urbanism and architecture in the 21st century. Starting with concepts such as the Metabolist movement in the 60’s, passing through the famed structures of the Tokyo Olympics, up to recent trends on the micro-scale in Tokyo districts and alleys, the lecture shows how this seemingly haphazard diversity does not result in chaos, but rather a kind of ecosystem of responses to the city’s conditions and possibilities.
