In September 2015, Playable City Tokyo embarked on a series of workshops to build a community of artists, technologists, students, companies and brands who could begin to author Japanese Playable City experiences. Three workshops took place over a month, supporting participants to undertake field-work to really understand the Toranomon area of Tokyo, the people who live and work there, and the Playable City vision.
The programme culminated in a two day ideas lab in October 2015, with twenty of the Playable City Tokyo workshop participants. The event bought together artists, architects, landscape designers and technologists, and featured industry participants from Honda Lab, NEC and Fujitsu – as well as partners Rhizomatiks, Wired Japan and Mori.
The two days feautured a programme of shared idea generation, iteration and collaboration and a final showcase to share ideas with colleagues from Mori, Wired Japan and Rhizomatiks.
