Experimental Design for Walkable MITO City
This is a venue design for a space utilization experiment in Mito City Center, which has been seriously hollowed out, to create a people-centered city instead of a car-centered one. Focusing on the casual urban spaces, such as vacant lots, plazas, rooftops, passages, and streets, we attempted to create a place for people on a low budget. The project consists of six spaces for staying, both indoors and outdoors, each location with different characteristics and scales, and four circulation spaces that connect them. We analyzed the context carefully and converted it into a design that maximized the existing potential with a minimum addition.
