Project for a Helix City




Tokyo, Japan

Design:1961

Design Concept

Here, urban structures are being developed both vertically and horizontally, and the points of contact are not conscious.

The helix structure is a spiral structure which has been proposed as a third or alternate spatial system for such urban space.Just as in the case of the chromosomes (DNA) in the life system, the helix structure acts as a space frame for data transmission.
This structure is in the form of a three-dimensional cluster system.
