Struggling Cities: from Japanese urban projects in the 1960s

Showcased in countries around the world, the travelling exhibition presents the experimental ideas and proposals of Japanese architects that emerged in Japan during the 1960s. It analyses how the designs, radical for their time, attempted to address concerns of over-population. Using a combination of diverse media — from architectural scale models to photographs and slides, animations and other audio-visuals — this exhibition examines various circumstances of Japanese and other cities up to the present day, and identifies, in particular, the distinctive aspects of those circumstances as they are manifested in present-day Tokyo. The exhibition in Sri Lanka is organised by the Japanese Embassy.
