Faced with the COVID19 pandemic challenges, in 2020 the biannual DOCOMOMO Student Workshop had to be postponed and has now been transformed into the Online DOCOMOMO School. It will offer an intensive 10-day online program that will be organised around teams of international tutors and students. Students in Tokyo serving as physical sensors will identify connections to the context and the urban fabric that will enable the International Students to weave them into their designs. It will lead students to explore and experience together the meaning and significance of conservation and preservation of 20th century cultural heritage.
Fumihiko Maki, who was a member of the seminal post-war architecture movement Metabolism, will play a prominent role in the Online DOCOMOMO School Tokyo 2020+1. Maki will provide theoretical content, while his office will make available the background information necessary to understand the Daikan-Yama Hillside Terrace site that adjoins the historic Asakura House of 1919.
