Zoo City – Tokyo

Competition entry by Marcelo Maia Rosa, Marcio Tanaka and Merten Nefs for the 2007 Shinkenshiku Zoo competition, Tokyo. The proposed Urban Zoo Network occupies vacant city spaces, linked to the public transport system.
This turns the contact with animal life into a daily experience for all citizens, bringing it nextdoor to where people work and live. At the same time it may function as a structural element in urban revitalization and city planning.
