The Urban Common Ground in Tokyo
Master of Architecture
For contemporary architecture, the situation is not the same anymore. Due to the globalization of the world, the backgrounds and contexts of the architects are becoming more and more complex. The contemporary practices are dealing with a multiple-layered situation which makes it impossible to solve problems through one single system or entirely by architects, especially in Tokyo. In my perspective, Tokyo city is a place filled with various architecture possibilities and conveys complexity and contradictions but it still all make a balanced urban landscape as the key characteristic. In conclusion, Tokyo city is based on a model of constant changes, uncertainty, and Metabolism. Under such conditions, the initial ambition of my thesis is absolutely clear: to explore the potential contemporary urban forms for a changing Tokyo serves as a speculation on the future.
