Tokyo Bench Project 2023

“TOKYO BENCH PROJECT” by the company GROUND LEVEL (Motoko Tanaka + Masaki Onishi) – holding the motto “towns are built from the ground level”. The project overflowed public spaces with benches, transforming the way people go about their daily business, and sights they encounter within our city.
By placing a bench, the circulation of people in the area improves, creating a lively everyday scene. This is a project that boosts people’s consumption behavior, health, and community building.

GROUND LEVEL (Motoko Tanaka)
With the motto, “towns are built from the ground level”, the company aims at building spaces for local people to play small roles in their neighborhoods. With a comprehensive design comprised of “hard” (architecture, interior, exterior), “soft” (what is offered, what is allowed), and “communitcation” (what moves people and pushes them into action), the resulting architecture and facilities along with the people who live there and the entire community grow more active through “ground level building”.
