The JACCC presents Struggling Cities: from Japanese Urban Projects in the 1960s, an international traveling exhibition canvasing the unique social and physical structure of post-war and post-occupation cities of Japan. Commissioned by The Japan Foundation, the exhibition is a part of Little Tokyo Design Week, July 13 - 17.

Though never realized, the ambitious urban projects in Japan as presented in the early 1960s help articulate the problems and changes the cities were facing due to rapid urbanization--problems, in light of the recent events, which are much too relevant to Japan today, but also to all modernized cities around the globe.

Taking Tokyo, the first megacity and one of the biggest cities in the world as a starting point, the exhibition is sure to challenge students of architecture, urban planning, and even history to see the struggles of our urban city lifestyles.
