Case study on the Architectural movement “Metabolism”. Project in detail “Nakagin Capsule Tower”. In the late 1950s, a small group of young Japanese architects and designers joined forces under the title “Metabolism”. Their vision for cities of the future inhabited by a mass society were characterized by large scale, flexible and expandable structures that evoked the processes of organic growth
In their view, the traditional laws of fixed form and function were obsolete. The panels aimed to support my presentation. The project included plans, elevations, a scaled model of the “Nakagin Capsule Tower” and a reinterpretation of this project.
