 > Global Cities looks at the changing faces of ten dynamic international cities:
 > Cairo, Istanbul, Johannesburg, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City,
 > Mumbai, São Paulo, Shanghai and Tokyo.
 > Exploring each city through five thematic lenses –
 > speed, size, density, diversity and form –
 > the exhibition draws on data originally assembled for the
 > 10th International Architecture Exhibition at the 2006 Venice Biennale.
 > This unique show presents existing films, videos and photographs
 > by more than 20 artists and architects to offer subjective
 > and intimate interpretations of urban conditions in all ten cities.
 > As Global Cities takes place in one of the focus cities,
 > the exhibition uses London as a touchstone for comparison.
 > New commissions by a group of six artists and architects
 > Nigel Coates; Zaha Hadid & Patrik Schumacher; Fritz Haeg;
 > OMA*AMO/Rem Koolhaas; Nils Norman; and Richard Wentworth –
 > explore the local context through issues such as sustainability,
 > public space and social inclusion.
 > Tokyo, the largest city in the world
 > and the only mega-city in a developed economy,
 > expanded dramatically after the Second World War.
 > Over 40% of the city is built on landfill encroaching on Tokyo Bay
 > to accommodate this growth. However, given Japan’s low demographic
 > dynamism and the policies to curb Tokyo’s growth,
 > the city will grow at a relatively modest pace. Like many other cities in Japan,
 > Tokyo is prone to earthquakes and flooding.
 > Home to a relatively wealthy and homogenous population,
 > the city is composed of narrow building plots,
 > closely-packed commercial districts, such as Shibuya,
 > Shinjuku, Ginza or the new centre at Roppongi Hills.
 > The Greater Tokyo area in the Kanto region now accommodates
 > over 34 million people in a consistently dense and multi-centred
 > urban region that is well served by an integrated system of trains,
 > underground and buses, used by nearly 80% of daily commuters.
 > Despite its scale and complexity Tokyo provides a highly
 > efficient urban model and is now seeking to make more of its assets
 > by creating denser clusters of development near the centre
 > and regenerating its under-used waterfront along Tokyo Bay.
 > The Governor of Tokyo is one of the most powerful figures
 > in the Japanese administration and Tokyo receives more
 > national fiscal resources than it contributes.
