By adding elements of Tokyo to other urban landscapes, does the city maintain its image, or become something completely different? This project works to challenge the ideas of city image and the thoughts behind locality.
Presented at the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale, the project displays an artistic re-imagining of cityscapes. The display in Venice consists of large-scale monitors showing each city after the process of ‘Tokyo-lization’. Daigo Ishii’s project can be seen through November 27, 2016.
