This is a 3d piece created by Cinema 4D and Maya.
Metabolism trend in the architecture started after WWII and heightened the individualistic importance of growth and living individuals as cells of the body of society. In my piece, I directly modelled and animated the two cities referencing the architecture space of Tokyo and designs of Kisho Kurokawa including his well-known Nakagin Capsule and a few of his sketches and designs that were not built before his death. I depicted two alternative views, of the modern city that encompasses a core globe housing a traditional Japanese building in sacred space:
On the right: The city has a fluent and dynamic shape, while the globe in the middle is static.
On the left: The city is static and the globe in the middle is shaky and fluent.
I intended to bring the contrast of these two views of a world where tradition and modernism coexist to the audience's attention and challenge them on the concept of normalcy.
