green island.

Project Green Island is a collaboration between creative director Ryo Taguchi, retouch creator Imakawa, and "coding operator" Yuichiro Imamura to show what Tokyo would look like if it was still a booming metropolis over sprawling grass.

After the Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923, Tokyo had to quickly rebuild itself in the 1950s. Although the city's skyscrapers provide a gorgeous skyline, Tokyo's greyness showcases the concrete jungle it has become. Described as a "dream for architects, but a nightmare for city planners" (Treehugger), it is nice to imagine what Tokyo could look like in all lush green grass.

And besides, how cool does Shibuya look with a little imagination!?
