東京都 - Tokyo Metropolis, Illustrations
The Manga - 漫画 - (composed of the two kanji 漫 (man) meaning "whimsical or impromptu" and 画 (ga) meaning "pictures) 
A local japanese manifestation (even inspired and derived from western media culture) of a globalized mediascape for the mass circulation of images primarily via printed media like comic books, magazines and newspapers but also now via new media like internet, video games and mobile phones - fun and entertaining to read, rooted in the daily life of millions of japanese people.

This is an attempt to use this common graphical and visual language as representation tool for architectural designs.
To study the city through its representation, analyzing both the elements and composition of an image of the city and the medium/platform through which it is spread and distributed.
