Osaka Expo 2020: Mikoshis of surveillance and spectacle

Based on traditional Japanese concepts of public space, the project proposes a new typology for the world exposition through the reconstruction of the processional and temporary qualities of the Matsuri (festival). Conceived as an extension of Arata Isozaki’s rebellion against the government’s top down control, it serves as a commentary on the act of surveillance both as a covert strategy used during Expo’70 and as a novelty of increasing fascination within contemporary society.
