Bureau 0–1 has joined forces with New York based op.AL to participate in the Exhibition "Balancing Act: Urbanism & Emerging Technologies", a new exhibition exploring how technology can develop a more human urban experience.

We envisioned "Fuel Cell Futurisms" as a speculative model for energy autonomy, urban morphological diversity, and nature-machine hybrid bosque proliferation.

The exhibition is held in Boston Society of Architects, Boston’s leading cultural institution for architecture and design. Please stop by if you're in the area!

AIA Japan Lecture / アメリカ建築家協会日本支部レクチャー

Upcoming Event on 04/25/2019 – AIA Japan Lecture

“Tokyoism: Speculative Practice as a Metronomic 'Other'”
April 25, 2019, 19:00~
@Arper Tokyo showroom

With a process oriented ontological principles that evades any equilibrious or binary system, Bureau 0–1 offers a boundary-less and timeless design that seeks to question and escape conventionality. Perhaps this is rooted in Kaz’s upbringing as an eternal metronomic outsider to Japan. Through this lecture, Kaz will ruminate on the possibility of integrated theory-praxis emanating from Tokyo in all its singularity and hyperboles.

In a series titled “Diplomacy”, we invite you to join us at the upcoming event hosted by The Platform to encourage discourse and networking across disciplinary and academic territoriality. The event features Kaz Yoneda in conversation with Yasutaka Tsuji to celebrate and reflect on his visit to London as a Richard Rogers Fellow. The Diplomacy events are free and open to the public. We look forward to seeing you there.

About Diplomacy Series:
There is a building right behind the British Embassy Tokyo. On its third floor, you can hear some mumbles. People seated around the table are smiling, while under the table they are kicking each other’s legs. This is the place of diplomacy, behind closed doors and unaffected by the tweets coming from the electrical net. But you there, intelligence agents who likes to eavesdrop, would you miss this?
駐日英国大使館の裏手にあるビルディングの3 階、ぽかんと広がる部屋では、なにやらよくわからない話が聞こえてくる。着座する人々は微笑みながらテーブルの下で相手の脛を蹴り続ける。なぜなら外交とは密室。電子網のつぶやきとは無縁。それでも盗み聴きがお好きなそこの貴方、どうぞ足をお運びください。
