In present-day Tokyo, convenience is king. But turn back the clock a hundred years, and you’ll find that it was once a resourceful city, with a lively ecosystem for recycling and repair. Project R has set out to reactivate these values and apply them to our lives today. This experimental community centre invites people to ‘learn, think and practice sustainable lifestyles together.’ Their makerspace combines a common area, shared kitchen, coworking office and café, featuring interiors and furniture made from waste materials. In collaboration with volunteers and other small businesses in Tokyo, they host a variety of online and offline activities, from second-hand markets, to repair workshops and composting classes.
