Asian cities in general and Japanese cities in particular have become in recent decades a kind of large-scale experiment.
decades a kind of large-scale experiment. They are dynamic places,
subject to the maelstrom of rapid development and boiling economies. A relationship with the past and tradition
and tradition that is completely different from the one we Europeans have, means that their cities are constantly renewing themselves, phagocytising themselves in a never-ending process of building and rebuilding. This is probably the reason why it is more likely that new types of buildings will appear there, models that will take more or less time to arrive in Europe but which will inevitably. Whoever takes a look at what is happening now in Japan will behave in a certain sense like an explorer of the future, that horizon towards which we are heading.
