Learning from Tokyo: Day 2

The symposium will feature some of the protagonists of Tokyo’s 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.
