  • Continuous Urbanity

    Woodbury SOA, "Continuous Urbanity."

    Japan Travel Studio 2016
    Woodbury University, School of Architecture
    critics: Matthew GILLIS, Donatella CUSMA, & Ingalill WAHLROOS-RITTER

    The Woodbury School of Architecture Japan Travel Studio fieldwork focused on the production of a continuous drawing series exploring distinct cities in Japan: Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka.

    The continuous drawings documented the ephemeral and transcendental qualities of the urbane object in Japanese culture as they affected the perception of the built environment. Students explored the idea of transecting the urban realm through isometric drawings, documenting urban[e] objects from the ubiquitous teacup and interior architecture of the tea house, to the architecture of idiosyncratic urban planning prejudices and influential Metabolist artifacts.

    The isometric framework allowed for both continuity and development in the series as the fieldwork travel through and between cities. Every three days new posts where added to the studio’s tumblr site. The drawings grew in length, time and space, evolving a cultural understanding through cultural production.

    During the fieldwork, two students presented the progress drawings and insights into the development of the work at SuperDeluxe for PechaKucha // Tokyo.
