What Major Cities Would Look If They Were Designed Like Tokyo
Japanese architect Diago Ishii applies the color and culture of one destination to another in his 'Worldwide Tokyo-ization Project'
Perhaps the closest comparison one could draw to Tokyo’s colorful and ever-luminous streets would be New York City’s Times Square, both major cities sites and attractions being culturally stimulating, curious and appealing to tourists. But what would happen if you peeled the skin off of Tokyo’s back and applied it elsewhere? That’s the question Japanese architect Diago Ishii looks to answer in his Worldwide Tokyo-ization Project, which borrows elements of the neon metropolis to re-image areas of New York, Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, Paris, La Paz and Venice.
