|Architectura & Natura
With the aim of creating an energy efficient, green, social and flexible urban living environment fit for the challenges of the 21st century, Osaka Gas commissioned the experimental residential complex ‘NEXT21’ in Osaka in 1989. Fifteen years into its existence and after three consecutive five-year cycles of ongoing experimentation with habitation, this half hour documentary by Beate Lendt looks back on the context and conditions of its visionary and pioneering multi-disciplinary design process. English subtitles.
