Online Docomomo School 2020+1 Tokyo, Japan
Launching: January 2021

In the context of the 16th International Docomomo Conference Tokyo Japan 2020+1, Docomomo International invites bachelor and master students to participate on the Online Docomomo School 2020+1 Tokyo, happening from 26th July to 4th August 2021.

Online Docomomo School is an online-workshop for succeeding and proceeding URBAN HERITAGE.
People lived, live and will live in the living heritage. It is not a symbol or memorial but something active that is to be weaved with contexts of history for future. Students in Tokyo as physical sensors will find and show strings of the context and International Online Teams will weave with them. It will lead students to seek meanings of conservation/preservation of cultural heritage.

The goal of the Workshop is to understand the significance of ideas in Modern Movement for our contemporary society and the environment.
Tokyo is a large, modern and futuristic city. It is also very historic. After the middle of 20th Century, some architects and critics predicted that “modern architecture is likely to lose the regional or historical character.” “Daikan-yama Hillside Terrace”, in the mega-city Tokyo, has successfully connected to the historical and regional context through the vocabulary of modern architecture. Today, we must answer to the challenging question of how we can
preserve and develop our environment while the architects continue to evolve the modernist theory. We believe that this Workshop, in the context of Daikan-yama Hillside Terrace, will inspire us all.

Applications as well as more details will be launched in January 2021.
