This event has ended.

Tange Kenzo and the Metabolists attempted to create a new vision for a new architecture and the city that would be in step with the rapid economic development taking place in postwar Japan. Half a century later, we ask the Metabolists who participated in that movement to discuss the architectural and social relevance of those activities today. How is their work back then linked with their work today? The Metabolists themselves and those who worked with them will give testimony as to the dynamism of the movement’s formative period and its subsequent development.

The exhibition is organized in four sections, plus the Metabolism Lounge.

Section 1: Birth of Metabolism
Section 2: Era of Metabolism
Section 3: From Space to Environment
Section 4: Global Metabolism
Metabolism Lounge - current ideas on future city models
