PingMag - Shrinking Nippon: Strategies For A Future Japan
"Japan is facing a lot of problems when it comes to town planning: a decreasing population that will soon be over aged, shrinking towns in the countryside and, moreover, a fading government budget that is tinted by last year’s pension scandal. We already introduced you to the Shrinking Cities exhibition that toured through Tokyo and dealt with vanishing populations. Working on that was also Hidetoshi Ohno, professor at the University of Tokyo: With his Fiber City project from 2005 he had developed strategies for a future Japan. Now, he gives an update with his Shrinking Nippon concept compilation, published by Kajima Institute Publishing. With PingMag, Hidetoshi Ohno talked about town planning in Japan."
