Pritzker prize winner Toyo Ito and architect Akihisa Hirata have come together to create an installation for Lexus during Milan Design Week 2013.  Based on the idea of “amazing flow”, the project wants to show the viewers the “kinaesthetic flow of the future city, with people, roads, water and winds interacting as a single entity and demonstrating new ways of living and moving.”

“Motion” is also the theme for this year’s international design competition organised by LEXUS, in collaboration with designboom. Participants were asked to create designs that “respond to various issues in daily life in relation to Motion, and provide solutions. “
