_DISPOSABLE TOKYO

DIGITAL STUDIO - COMPONENT&SYSTEM

Prof Arch. Eran Nueman, Arch. Tamir Lavie

Inspired by "Tokyo Metabolizing", Japan’s national pavilion for the 2010 Venice Architecture Biennale, which investigates architectural metabolism in the context of Tokyo and its urban make-up. The exhibition shows the ways in which Tokyo has transformed and evolved  through this concept since the end of WWII,  presenting the city as an ever changing and growing organism that is constantly taking new forms throughout the years.

The goal was to represent this  unique  urban phenomena happening in Tokyo with a digitally fabricated installation using one singular component to create the entire system, while also focusing on creating virtual experience using video mapping to translate Tokyo’s constant change and its relationship with history and modernity. 

"Tokyo Metabolizing", Japan’s national pavilion for the 2010 Venice Architecture Biennale, investigates architectural metabolism in the context of Tokyo and its urban make-up. introduced 50 years ago, the concept of ‘metabolizing’ was the first influential manifesto regarding the city that was ever transmitted from Japan to the world. It called for the replacement of a city’s functional components as if it were a collective machine.

 

The exhibition looks at the ways in which Tokyo has transformed and evolved through this concept, presenting the city as an ever changing and growing organism that is constantly taking new forms through out the years.

Installation / Video Mapping

To demonstrate the change occurring in Tokyo, we created a virtual layer which expands on the physical one - while the installation hanged in its bounding box, the video mapping creates a 3d field of box an abstract shapes that are changing constantly and representing urban Tokyo through the years, and the model itself began stretching and expanding creating a dynamic ever changing environment.
