Urban[e] Objects

BY WOODBURY SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE
@ VOL 136 ON JUN 02, 2016

A cohort of Architecture Students from Woodbury University elected Tokyo to conduce fieldwork studies by the theme  Urban[e] Objects. The research proposes new residential strategies through the translation of objects that can exist simultaneously in multiple scales: as a tea-cup or as an urban building. Their research deploys the use of isometric drawings and urban transects and inspiration derived by traditional Japanese drawing techniques to investigate questions of authenticity, translation of vernacular making methods, and interiority and apply them to contemporary challenges of shelter.

Celebrating Illustrators and Tokyo

BY THE TOKYOITER
@ VOL 138 ON JUL 27, 2016

"We were documenting Tokyo a lot, but even though we might draw Tokyo tower three times, because of our different background and where we come from, there will be three different outcomes which we thought was really interesting."

In Celebrating Illustrators and Tokyo from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 138, David Robert and Andrew Joyce share on The Tokyoiter project. The Tokyoiter is willing to present the talent of artists and the wonderful and inspiring city of Tokyo to a larger audience. Every cover of this imaginary magazine and tribute to The New Yorker and The Parisianner is a celebration of creativity and one of the best city on earth.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, September 2nd, 2016.
