Entropic Tokyo is a book about the city of Tokyo. A journey towards understanding a multiform and chaotic metropolis that hides a profound human order. The book proposes a reading of Tokyo that considers the city as a dynamic system of high complexity, that can be traced to a set of components. It also identifies a connection between the physical world of chaos theory and urban morphology, and tells of the multiple faces of the city (quantitative and qualitative elements of the landscape, physical and socio- cultural concepts) that come into relation by manifesting themselves through the urban fabric. By exploring the dynamic movements that can be discerned in contemporary Tokyo and the solid structures that underlie its roots, the reader will gain new insights into the exploration of cities, new values that emerge not from their individual components but from their relationships. 162 illustrations
