CCA c/o Tokyo


Over the course of 2018 and 2019, we are working with Kayoko Ota, an architectural curator and editor based in Tokyo and commissioner of the Japanese pavilion at the 2014 Venice Biennale, to develop research with and facilitate public engagement with our projects in Tokyo.

To launch c/o Tokyo, we commissioned a multi-part documentary on the posturban phenomenon in Japan. Traveling to small villages and tiny islands far from Tokyo, Ota explores how, in place of the conventional system of commissioning, a new kind of exchange is emerging between architects and rural communities. The documentary—which features Toyo Ito, Atelier Bow-Wow, Kazuyo Sejima, Toshikatsu Ienari, and Hajime Ishikawa—premiered within a larger online editorial project focused on nonurban cities, providing the perspective of another culture to an ongoing CCA investigation.
