House Vision 2016 Tokyo Exhibition
House Vision provides a platform for creating a vision of future industry with the house as its nexus.
This summer, HOUSE VISION will hold its second, this time involving a substantially larger group of companies and individuals. These carefully constructed and government certi ed buildings show with significant reality a future that may be within reach tomorrow. For the 2016 TOKYO EXHIBITION, the theme is “Co-Dividual - Split and Connect/Separate and Come Together”, with the objective of thinking about how to create new connections between individuals. Japan faces significant issues with this topic, as a country struggling with economic stagnation, a decreasing population, an aging society, disasters striking one after another, and increasing friction in interpersonal communication. That is precisely why Japan is the ideal place to examine the form of the house from many different perspectives, exploring specific survival strategies with the potential to show how we will live in the future.
