Fun City: Tokyo

The city as a "laboratory of fun" and "university of the streets"
Like Cedric Price and Joan Littlewood's Fun Palace, Tokyo functions as a passive backdrop and active facilitator of the daily activities of its residents and visitors. These activities include experimentation, interaction, exploration, and having sheer fun. At the scale of a megalopolis like Tokyo, the possibilities are seemingly infinite. Multitudinous and multifarious.
