Anastomosis: the Connected City

PRESENTED ON JUN 26, 2013
IN TOKYO @ VOL 104

Project [anastomosis] presents a different view on the functioning of contemporary city and solution of its problems. Dominik Saitl explains that the city is understood as a closed structure with "frozen evolution". Its further developement can't be done by rebuilding the city but by its adaptation. To start this healing process it is necessary to activate small but important connections.

 "Presentation of the Day" on July 5, 2013.
