co+labo radović Gehl+co+labo+... a workshop in Tokyo
In the second part of February, co+labo radović joined an urban quality workshop, which was initiated and conducted by David Sim, a Partner and Creative Director in Gehl Architects, Copenhagen and co-organised with Taisei Corporation, Kogakuin University and other local stakeholders. At the focus of the workshop were basic investigations of places and practices of urban life in West Shinjuku, and possibilities to help advance the quality of life between buildings in some of the least active spaces of central Tokyo.
co+labo and Kogakuin University students joined forces to make a snapshot of pedestrian activities in less than favourable conditions, and provided the material for rich discussions about the present and alternative futures of the largely mono functional main CBD of Tokyo.
