co+laboradović co+labo Urban Research World Cup+Board @ the Brazil Embassy, Tokyo
As we informed the readers of our blog before, following the success of co+labo radović research pavilion in Jiyugaoka, we were invited to join the Football World Cup Festa organised by the Embassy of Brazil in Tokyo. We have set up our fieldwork cupboard within the Embassy's World Cup Pavilion, designed specially for this occasion by Shigeru Ban Architects and, over the next week, co+labo will be collecting opinions about the transformative capacity of global sporting events to make our cities better. The data will be used to open a discussion evening, co-organised by the Embassy and co+labo radović on 9 July, under the title Global Sport Events and Quality of Urban Space: from the Brazil World Cup 2014, to Rio Olympics 2016 and Olympic Tokyo 2020.
If you are in Tokyo these days, please visit the Embassy Pavilion, enjoy the World Cup at that piece of Brazilian territory in Japan and help our research by giving us your opinion and ideas about those themes. If you are around on Wednesday evening, call the Embassy to book your place in discussion room and - see you there!
