Interviews & Maps


Futurescape Tokyo is

a study in urban

fantasies and speculative

cartography. The project aims

to explore potential future

scenarios of the world's

largest megalopolis Tokyo,

which is expected to

shrink dramatically

during the next 86 years.



We have invited six Tokyoites to fantasize about the urban future of Tokyo in year 2100. Through interviews and quick sketch studies centered around the question "What is your vision of Tokyo in 2100?" we explore possibilities and potentials of a shrunken megacity, from the perspectives of an architect, a sociologist, an ex-banker, a house wife, a social media engineer, and a design philosopher.
