This thesis work starts from the identification of a problem - the land consumption in the city of Tokyo - and proposes as a solution an architectural strategy aimed at overcoming the physical limit of the lack of soil, without distorting the nature of the city. The purpose of the research is to develop an alternative method for designing hyper-dense cities like Tokyo, building above the existing using the low-rise buildings as new ground zero for the urban community growth. The idea is the design of a pop-up architecture which stands above, independently, the two low-rise existing buildings. The project starts from the ideation of an elevated platform, fluid, able to fill in an acrobatic way the empty spaces between the two buildings.
