Inherent Properties

Tokyo: sign

The properties that make this a suitable space for dumping bags of dog excrement, and a sign to encourage owners not to do the same. Street architecture that formally supports this behaviour in Helsinki.

Eager beavers heading out to Tokyo Design Week should consider taking in D & Dept (where this photo was taken) – its one store that consistently stocks a subtle range of Design Japan. Being a bit out of the way means it avoids the usual design-tourist crowd. Take in a lunch setto and spend an hour to peruse the warehouse.
