Metabolist Architecture

Metabolist Architecture is a style of architectural design that originated in Japan in the late 1950s and early 1960s. It is characterized by a focus on modular and flexible structures that can adapt and change over time, much like the metabolism of a living organism. Metabolist architects sought to create architecture that was in harmony with the rapid economic and technological growth of post-war Japan and aimed to design buildings that could be easily reconfigured, expanded, or altered as needed.
