Urban life in Tokyo adapts
Favas.net wants to understand the urban life of Tokyo’s citizens. How do they use the urban street patterns? How do they move in their city? Our research continued this month with fieldwork at our permanent location in Tokyo (Shibuya, Dogenzaka, downhill). The Covid pandemic is still leaving its mark on public spaces. A large part of the new buildings have now been completed. We are still challenging our research questions, but we have already found that walking patterns within our site have changed significantly. Urban life adapts in two ways. To the (post, or perhaps new) Covid situation, and to the constrains the new buildings with their hard facades and new entrances impose on the use of public space.
