Symposium New Tokyo Story
In this symposium, CUS member Zef Hemel and Moriko Kira have invited Tokyo-based specialists, academics and practitioners, to reflect on these symptoms of Tokyo’s transformation and of the ways in which thegovernment, companies and citizens manage its urban future. Amsterdam, a small globalcity with 2.5 million inhabitants, can learn by examining Tokyo, the world’s biggest city with38 million inhabitants, and can draw inspiration for new ways of dealing with practical, local knowledge through holistic intervention in a high-dynamic urban fabric under the pressure of globalization.
