After the success of Dobokuten Exhibit at the 21_21 Design Museum in Tokyo Roppongi, we have been motivated to move and setting up a second Dokuboten at the Museum of Modern Art in Shanghai.
The size of the Shibuya Station 1:100 scale model was pretty large in lenght and heavy in its whole, therefore the packing work had to be accurate and then easily to assemble once arrived on site. It is in fact thanks to the effort of TamLab students that we could achieve to the most difficult assembly work.
This experience into an international different environment was also very impressive and important to their education and as a teamwork.
Thanks to the contribution of visitors, we could also learn over differences and comparisons among stations. In fact while Shibuya Station had a vernacular spatial organisation, the Shanghai stations have been built with observance to rationality, in a rigid spatial mesh organisation.
