What Would Cities Look Like “Tokyo-ized”!

Art moe Tokyo

Tokyo’s vibrant skin can be overstimulating and chaotic to some, but rich, engaging and even nostalgic to others. But what happens when you take Tokyo’s skin and apply it to other cities? Would each city change into Tokyo? These are some questions posed and subsequently answered by Japanese architect Daigo Ishii in a project titled “Worldwide Tokyo-lization Project”. The fascinating project takes elements of Tokyo and applies them to six global cities: New York, Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, Paris, La Paz and Venice. The project, originally produced as a video work, will be displayed at the 2016 Venice Biennale through November 27, 2016.
