Mukojima and Kyojima, both part of Tokyo's traditional "lower town", are districts in transition. Though it is still easy to read the structure of the traditional city here, recent social and economic transformations are reshaping the neighborhood. The amazing variety and the human qualities of the townscape found in places like Mukojima and Kyojima are more and more giving way to a faceless city where public space is an anonymous no-mans-land.

Taking Mukojima and Kyojima as concrete examples, mukojima networks focusses on the problems created by the contemporary transformation process of cities, creating an open forum for discussions on the future of the neighborhoods, and a model project for how to introduce new ideas into the process of urban renewal.

The mukojima networks urban exhibition, an experimental, transdisciplinary event including town planning, architecture, and art, is our tool of intervention. Events in the neighborhoods public open spaces form a neighborhood exhibition network for inhabitants and visitors. The mukojima networks urban exhibition is connecting people and places inside and outside of Mukojima, ... and is about a direct sensual interaction with our contemporary urban reality.
