Aging Tokyo

Jul 2 – Jul 13, 2018
Tokyo, Japan
Research Question

In collaboration with faculty and students from Waseda University, this workshop will investigate the future of Tokyo based on shifting demographics and longer human lifespans. The workshop will observe how aging currently impacts the city and its periphery, identify broader trends and opportunities, and examine specific sites and case studies that reveal critical challenges facing the future of Tokyo. The workshop will focus primarily on new forms of housing instigated by aging, but also touch upon broader issues beyond a typological study of housing. The outcome of the summer workshop will be captured in a booklet.
