Welcome to Keihinjima! Located just a stone's throw from Haneda Airport, this manmade island is an enormous industrial belt with only one resident.
This project will convert an ironworks on the island (at 2-11-7 Keihinjima, Ota-ku, Tokyo) into an open-access art factory.
The first floor of the two-story factory (300 m2) will house an open-space art factory where various processing work can be performed, and the second floor will be reserved for offices and ateliers where artists can stay and create.
The project will also collaborate with collective creative spaces in other countries around the world.
New York's Soho and Dumbo, London’s East End, and Beijing's 798 District are examples of industrial districts that have a history of being developed by the creativity of artists and transformed into cultural hubs attract tourists from all over the world.
Tokyo, however, has no place with such a history.
The expansive space and resources the Bay Area offers will make possible what is impossible to achieve elsewhere in Tokyo.
This untouched frontier has the potential to breathe new life into Tokyo.
The start-up of this project was supported by crowdfunding.
