In conjunction with the exhibition Tectonic Visions Between Land and Sea: Works of Kiyonori Kikutake, Special Collections presents original documents highlighting the broader international context of Metabolism as an architectural movement and discourse intersecting with Harvard, its faculty and archival collections. This evolution encompasses the launch of Metabolism at the 1960 World Design Conference in Tokyo, Osaka Expo ’70 and urban schemes based on land and sea that address the rapidly transforming nation of Japan and world at large.
