How to describe a city as diverse as Tokyo?
A pastel colored amorphous foam,
constituted out of thousands of microscopic spheres?
A vintage Casio watch?
A giant retro-futuristic spaceship?
Tokyo offers an abundance of phenomena to be researched on all scales: Infrastructure and architecture, a unique visual culture, popular ‘otaku’ (geek) culture, (image) consumption and an entertainment industry that seems to cater to any possible form of escapism. In this edition of the Summer Sessions, we will use the context of Tokyo as input to explore these new pattern languages. But even more so, we will speculate on how we can dream, build and live with them.
