_TYP

The installation serves as a 1:1 model of a capsule from the Nakagin Capsule Tower and embodies the progressive ideas of the Metabolists. The underlying concept is to reevaluate society by harnessing architecture as a transformative tool, speculating on how buildings can adapt, expand, and metamorphose. The Capsule was accompanied by a video work focusing on the cultural heritage of the tower. Light and sound impulses gave the installation a life of its own, from a object to a being.







Metabolism is an architectural movement founded in Japan bet- ween the late 50s and early 60s. Four young architects formed the group - Kiyonori Kikutake, Kisho Kurokawa, Fumihiko Maki, and cri- tic Noboru Kawazoe, all heavily influenced by their professor, the na- tional superstar-architect, Kenzo Tange. The main idea was to rethink society using architecture as a tool for potential change, speculating how buildings can change, grow, and evolve.
