METACITY is a research collective exploring forms of “possible city" through thought experiments and prototyping.

We see culture and the arts as a new urban infrastructure that will contribute to the inner richness of citizens, and we are working with stakeholders in various fields to explore the realization of this idea from multiple perspectives.

Currently, we are collaborating with the art group about tea ceremony "The TEA-ROOM," the magazine "WIRED," the engineering group "CARTIVATOR," the 4D fabrication lab "Hiroya Tanaka Lab," and the MIT Media Lab City Science Group, a laboratory specializing in city science. We are working with about 40 artists, researchers, and engineers on collaborative projects.
