Picture Journal: July 16, 2011 (Little Tokyo Design Week, with photos and free swag to give away!)

A little bare bones today I know, but it's just because there was so much to do and see, I had to compress like a motherbitch.

Photos after the jump!

A short recap of some of the things there. 

Design pods, basically mini exhibits showcasing architectural concepts, art, disaster infographics, etc. The following were some of my favorites.

One of the pods had environmentally-minded, psychologically adventurous but completely ridiculous concept homes.

This was a totally neato pod that applied Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs (Psych major whatup) in post-disaster settings. It basically gave a guide on basic needs using mostly refuse.

One of the pods was an art exhibition filled with postcards featuring art (finished and process) by contemporary artists.

One of the pods also played an animation by Koji Morimoto; Here's an excerpt: 

One of the really great exhibits featured concept cities. This shit here is why I once considered Environmental Psychology as a vocation. I grabbed the pamphlet so I forgot to take some pictures of some of my favorite concepts.

 Other events include a Stan Sakai exhibition for Usagi Yojimbo (closed before I could go), a fully equipped emergency temporary home (The Daiwa EVD-01, should have taken pictures, I know), local food trucks, an amateur attempt at a cosplay contest, free photography as well as the aforementioned dance party and sake testing.

I also picked up some stickers and postcards if anybody wants some

Looking forward to next year yessir
