Japan and its people have been at the forefront of a digital revolution since the past four or five decades. The country has long existed between two realms. On the one hand, we have the traditional “old world” of temples, tea ceremonies and calligraphic cherry blossoms. On the other hand, there shines a futuristic “new” world of bullet trains, AI dogs, anime pilgrimages, 2.5-dimension theatres, digital currency like J-coin and receptive gaming consoles. Japan has been a place of fascination throughout the years, particularly to those interested in media and popular culture, business, science and technology, and other related areas such as transport and tourism.

Climate change chaos is upon us. Driven mostly by the massive release of carbondioxide from burning fossil fuels, the average temperature of the Earth has risen 1°C. This temperature increase has led to droughts, famine, floods, increased extreme weather events, displacement of thousands of people, the rapid disintegration of ecosystems, and a foreboding promise of mass extinction. Even under painstaking carbon management plans, such as the Paris Agreement, Earth is locked into 3.5°C of warming, enough to collapse every ecosystem upon which our lives depend.

This shift aligns with a global trend, namely the global socio-economic transformation from a society based on mechanical mass production to a society based on digital customization. This implies a city based on R&D, marketing and finance, requiring continuous networking and face to face communication. The city becomes the social super-brain.

In October 1959, when the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum opened the doors to its new building on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue, it promptly became “the obligatory topic of every New York conversation The last built work by Frank Lloyd Wright, who had died earlier that year at 91, was not showered with praise, as one might now expect, but pelted with criticism. Almost everyone felt that the architecture of the museum dominated the paintings and the art inside. Such was the power of FLW’s architecture. Wright’s building made it socially and culturally acceptable for an architect to design a highly expressive, intensely personal museum. In this sense, almost every museum of our time is a child of the Guggenheim.

The metro, local rail or the bus transit being considered the best and most widely accessed modes of transportation, need constant modifications to keep up with the increasing population and requirement of facilities. But to what extent and frequency can we expect these changes to occur? Seating requirement is one of the most common issues, with a changing number of commuters each day and at each station. Having the physical constraints of a vehicle, we definitely cannot expect a constant proportional increment, instead could find a personalised solution to it.
Can ‘carrying a seat of our own’ be an answer to these prevailing issues?
Does it necessarily need to be a ‘seat’ in the first place?
