Abstract: Dubbed as the youth culture epicentre in Tokyo, Japan, Shimokitazawa’s district identity is currently under threat from the local planning proposal to clear existing occupied land for the creation of large motorways and buildings into an otherwise dense and small urban fabric. Hence, on an urban planning perspective, this thesis explores the possibility of introducing an alternative town planning model in existing underutilised spaces that celebrates the urban texture while staying relevant to contemporary planning concerns. This is achieved through a symptomatic analysis of the different parts of the district, where a variety of design strategies have been established for urban rejuvenation and "healing". An extension to the district master plan is the thesis’s main proposal of a creative village that provides platforms for the development and showcase of local artists’ works involving music, theatre and movie. It experiments with the different methods in creating transformative performance spaces to meet varying demands in the creative process as well as the introduction of a multi-layered roji network and green spaces that ultimately aim to exemplify the design potentials in maintaining a dense and small typology.
