#next_top_architects in #NEXTarch We Trust  How to open up our solid towers?
The Why Factory @thewhyfactory_winy.maas exhibits 81 porous towers at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo as part of the exhibition Future and the Arts: AI, Robotics, Cities, Life - How Humanity Will Live Tomorrow.
The towers were built during a five-day workshop organized in collaboration between The Why Factory, TUDelft and Chiba Institute of Technology. Students proposed a method to prove that urban porosity is socially, environmentally and economically valuable. By looking at how to measure urban porosity, this method aims to promote the capacity of the three-dimensional pixel (the so-called ‘voxel’) for both measuring and evaluating the relative porosity of any built form as well as for negotiating design.
