About Our Project
2013年，我們在台北舉辦了以「Tokyo Community Space」為題的小型展覽會，挑選出位於東京的12處社群空間，分別訪談其籌辦人，並以展覽與手冊的形式發表。我們希望能呈現出那一份電視媒體從未報導過的東京原貌。透過這個活動，我們了解到台北與東京這兩座城市，出乎意料地擁有類似的社會問題，以及面對這些問題所具備的危機意識。

In 2006 he established with two colleagues the architectural practice Frontoffice/ Tokyo. Christian has earned his PhD from the University of Tokyo with his urban history dissertation ‘[Re]negotiating Public Space: a Historical Critique of Modern Public Space in Metropolitan Japan and its Contemporary Re-valuation’. As a JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) post-doctoral research fellow he was affiliated with the Interfaculty Initiative in Information Studies at the University of Tokyo, where he examined the 'Politics and Contestations of Public Space in post-industrial metropolitan Japan'. This project was carried out in cooperation with his research host Prof. YOSHIMI Shunya. Christian was Assistant-Professor at the University of Tokyo (between April 2012 and March 2016), where he taught post-graduate courses on 'Advanced Urban Studies' as well as 'Dissertation Writing.' He also holds the position of an Adjunct-Professor at Waseda University’s School of International Liberal Studies, where he teaches undergraduate courses on ‘Sustainable Urbanism,’ 'Politics of Public Space,' 'Global Urbanism', as well as ‘Post-positivist Planning Theory’. He is co-founder of the charitable, design-led disaster response organisation, Architecture for Humanity (now Open Architecture Collaborative OAC)｜Tokyo Chapter, as well as of the TPF²｜Tohoku Planning Forum, which facilitates the exchange of ideas, projects and initiatives for the reconstruction of the disaster-hit areas of Tohoku in north-eastern Japan with international experts and professionals from various fields.
Kyoco Taniyama (谷山恭子), Artist
Born in Aichi, Japan, Lives and works in Tokyo.
My creative inspiration is motived by the concept of ubiety- which is the quality or state of being in a place. Since I obtained B.A and M.A in Product and Craft Design Program at Musashino Art University in Japan, I’ve showed my works at museums and galleries mainly in Japan. I’ve been also involved in community based art projects, site-specific installations and public art projects that emphasize the history and character of a specific area from around 2008. After the massive earthquake and tsunami hit the East Coast Japan in 2011, people lost their geographic location under the devastated area. Since then, I started lat/long project, which was composed of the combination of lat/long numbers and showed the location where I was exactly at on the earth. I received grant from Asian Cultural Council and stayed in New York from August, 2012 to February, 2013. While I was in New York, I also participated in the residency program, Swing Space organized by LMCC. As for the publication, my artwork was featured in the Power of Japanese Art in 2005, Setouchi International Art Festival catalogue in 2010, Vogue Japan in 2013, and many others such as news papers and magazines.
