Learning from Tokyo

«Learning from Tokyo» is a symposium and an exhibition in Zurich – organized by the «Learning from Tokyo»-Group in cooperation with Architekturforum Zürich – that showcases small scale housing projects by young, creative architecture offices in Japan.

The symposium will feature some of the protagonists of this new generation of architects and aims to establish a dialogue with Swiss architects, planners, city officials and the interested public. The topic contrasts two very different cities and cultures which in many unexpected ways still have a lot in common.

Program Symposium: Day 1
Program Symposium: Day 2

 
The exhibition will focus on the quality and diversity of living space produced on small building lots with limited budgets in the center of a city such as Tokyo.

«Learning from Tokyo» ist eine Ausstellung und ein Symposium – organisiert von der Gruppe «Learning from Tokyo» in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Architekturforum Zürich – über neue, innerstädtische Wohnbauten junger, innovativer Architekturbüros aus Japan.

Das Symposium stellt einige der Protagonisten dieser neuen Generation japanischer Architekten vor und ermöglicht einen Dialog mit Schweizer Architekten, Planern, Vertretern der Stadt Zürich und der interessierten Öffentlichkeit. Dabei treffen zwei sehr unterschiedliche Städte und Kulturen aufeinander, die dennoch viele überraschende Gemeinsamkeiten aufweisen.
Die Ausstellung zeigt die Qualität und Vielfalt, die auf kleinen Grundstücken mit geringen Budgets im Zentrum einer Stadt wie Tokyo erzielt werden können.
