the exhibition ‘coop himmelb(l)au: future revisited’, curated by yukiko shikata and organized by the ntt intercommunication center (icc) in tokyo, japan presents two projects that were first shown at the 11th international venice architecture biennale in 2008.

‘brain city lab’ is a current research project of coop himmelb(l)au, the university of applied arts vienna, the neuroscientist wolf singer as well as sociologists, and computer programmers. this interactive installation relates the development process of the human brain with that of the city. the final goal will be to conceive programs adopting the latest resources from biological and information sciences to forebode scenarios for urban and social development.
