INT. STUDENT WORKSHOP | 26 July to 4 August, 2021 | online

Faced with the COVID19 pandemic challenges in 2020, the DOCOMOMO International Student Workshop in Japan has been transformed into the Online DOCOMOMO School.

Learning from Daikan-Yama Hillside Terrace by Fumihiko Maki

oDOMOs Tokyo 2020+1 will be focusing on in-depth research on urban modern heritage and its relation to Japanese culture. This program is open to all master students in urbanism, architecture and interior architecture.

People have lived and will continue to live in modern neighbourhoods and sites that represent 20th century urban heritage. Daikan-yama Hillside Terrace in Tokyo, is such an example of a modern architecture and urban masterpiece, designed between 1969 and 1992 by Pritzker Prize winner Fumihiko Maki (1928).

An intensive 10-day online program will be organised in teams of international tutors and students. They will lead students to explore and experience together the meaning and significance of conservation and preservation of 20th century cultural heritage.

Fumihiko Maki, who was a member of the seminal post-war architecture movement Metabolism, will play a prominent role in the Online DOCOMOMO School Tokyo 2020+1. Maki will provide theoretical content, while his office will make available the background information necessary to understand the Daikan-Yama Hillside Terrace site that adjoins the historic Asakura House of 1919.
