STARTUP INCUBATOR (LANDSCAPE OF ACTIVITIES)
thesis project at the Tokyo Institute of Technology
Tokyo, Japan, 2014
Landscape of activities is a proposal for a new business incubator in the multicultural Shibuya area in Tokyo, that aims to show a way in workplace design that reflects on Japan’s present labour situation.
By the crisis of the institute of lifetime employment, types of jobs, work habits and environments transform. The ongoing paradigm change in labour needs to draw the use of new structures that are socially and programmatically more integrated into their urban landscape.
Therefore “Landscape of activities” is also a design strategy that shows a methodology how to create a building out of its surrounding, how to build a receptive workplace by the pieces of its urban landscape.
