Public Lecture #36 – Interface In Tokyo

Hi restless spirit!

This Saturday, we will have a sharing session titled “Interface in Tokyo” by Munna Dwi Putri & Shabrina Putri Ghassani.

This pilgrimage is based on the theme of human – building connection and its surrounding environment, local materials, details, access, density, forming of space, and other architectural ideas. Tokyo, on the other hand, is a great example to experience urban interface and city planning/zoning in real life settings as a part of our architectural journey. It is a vast and advanced city of a first world. Despite of its population, inner city of Tokyo felt alive and rich of experience.

As part of their research, used “Interface” as basis of reading Tokyo inner area. Interface itself, according to Kim Dovey, is not ‘things’, but connections, relations and flows that are geared to productive practices. His hypothesis is that the rich mix of interface types and the slippages between them are linked to creative clustering [1]. By categorizing buildings & areas in terms of their visibility and accessibility, they found out that it has different impact of spatial experience as pedestrian.

Along with another 200 batch of UPH School of Design, our speaker will discuss what categorization that had been found on this Saturday.
