Architectural Body tour (architectural tour + workshop)

The Reversible Destiny Lofts—Mitaka makes your body become an “architectural body” (ARAKAWA + GINS). This tour is specially organized for those who would like to experience the lofts perceiving the space through your body. A workshop leader will guide you in releasing your body into the space, and you may enjoy walking blindfolded with other participants. As this program is focused mainly on bodies, we will give you just the minimum information on the architecture and authors, ARAKAWA+GINS by words.
