In 2050, Tokyo, now the largest metropolis in the world, will be the first megacity in human history that experiences rapid decrease of population, and vast deterioration of infrastructure, as well as other local cities in Japan. Ohno, a prominent urban theorist/ architect, challenges a new theory of urbanism for these shrinking cities in post-industrial era, by connecting ""fiber units"" of local communities in the city to re-design the cities' information, transportation, and industrial networks, as well as their landscapes.

About the Author:

Born in 1949, Hidetoshi Ohno has been Professor at the University of Tokyo since 1999 (architecture, urban planning). Apartner architect and co-author of Fumihiko Maki, Ohno is prized by the Architectural Institute of Japan for his architectural works in the University of Tokyo. He is also the editor of "Hong Kong, the Alternative Metropolice" (SD, 1992). For his "Fiber City" project, see the project's website: http://www.fibercity2050.net/e/index.html.

Review:

The approach employed in Fibercity offers an intelligent and balanced way to articulate theoretical considerations and a set of concrete proposals. (Joao Silva Leite, Faculdade de Arquitetura da Universidade de Lisboa Urban Morphology)
