Designed by a team of international creators, Shin Minatomura will employ the outstanding talents of its architects and artists to build houses, theatres and a zoo, all constructed from discarded wood and bulky garbage. Rather than importing electricity, it will create its own grid using solar energy, rechargeable systems and human generated power. LEDs and lanterns will provide light by night. This blueprint for a future city will interconnect Tohoku, Japan’s northeast, with Yokohama, thus creating a communal platform for their inhabitants, skills, commodities and energy sources. Embarking on a voyage towards a future society, a weekly bus will connect Tohoku with Shin Minatomura.
