Tokyo. Perpetual motion

free for myMAXXI cardholders

curated by Milano Design Film Festival

Four encounters with auteur cinematography recounting the spirit of New York, Tokyo, Milan and London, global urban and architectural poles.

The programme of screenings flanks the series of lectures The Histories of Architecture. The Cities of the World with historical, poetic, analytic and inquiring gazes. Highlighting certain identifying traits of the cities and emphasising the most recent contemporary transformations as well as those with deeper roots that have determined their current spirit, the documentaries present a remarkably varied and complete overview.

Tokyo. Perpetual motion
In continuous movement and continuous transformation, Tokyo has the capacity to superimpose the new on the old, respecting both tradition and the city’s approach to the modern.
