The master class with Momoyo Kaijima reopened a dialogue between people interested in architecture and metropolitan development and acted as a productive platform to exchange and further develop existing skills and knowledge. It was not so much a question of developing traditional solutions, but rather of discussing diverse questions and possibilities together with students, teachers and guests. Finally, we would like to thank all those involved for their contributions and hope you enjoy reading this publication.
