CONVERSATIONS ON THE CITY

 

Conversations on the City is a series of open-ended conversations from a group of leading thinkers from design, art, science, and media about life in the contemporary city. In different but compelling ways, the work of each of these individuals helps us better understand the pleasures and frustrations of living an urban life, and asks questions that challenge the way we see and think about the city. Each conversation is structured around a broad theme but all will explore how fundamental values like openness and access help shape our experience of Japan and give cities their vitality and meaning.
