Tokyo Midtown Design Hub 76th Exhibition: TAKURAMITEN -Making Near Future-

MORE INFORMATION

November 25(Sun) - December 24(Mon)

In contrast, “shapeless designs," such as communication born between people, services and systems to facilitate them, are imbedded in our daily lives and beyond in larger society. This exhibition presents a new approach to "design" that closely sides by the local community, businesses and persons with a focus on “the next step of social design," a methodological approach to solving social and personal issues.
