As a part of an event, "Yokohama Redux: The Saga of Continuous Architecture" on March 17th at Hongo Campus, the semester-long seminar course at the University of Tokyo presented their research and manifestos. The event consisted of mid-term presentations by design studios at Princeton, U-Penn, Columbia, and Nagoya Institute of Technology, joined by a seminar from the University of Tokyo. The topic of the studios and the seminar was to revisit Yokohama International Ferry Terminal Competition, marking its 20th anniversary, in order to examine and develop the concept of Continuous architecture, which was a base of winning proposal by FOA.
The event was a full-house and followed by a lively science-fair format discussions.
Please join us for this event next year.
