I'm an Architect and Urban Planner, anime has always played a huge role in my journey as a Designer. Whether it is design inspiration or simply life motivation to challenge the odds and keep going. Because Hollywood is literally in my backyard [and as our cities combat impending irreversible Climate change ] I wanted to explore what we can learn about the future of humankind from science fiction and what they got right. Tokyo-III, the other City of Angels lol, was the first case study to come to mind. What can we learn from a city designed to protect its inhabitants?

The EvaGeeks Archive was a super invaluable resource, a shoutout in the credits :D

Super interested in your thoughts on green infrastructure Urbanism and what Evangelion got right haha

Why don't you save the Princess next time instead of being such a baby? She would love it and maybe you could get a sweet kiss. ~ sadly not Mari in Q (Joseki)

What about titty-ten? ~ Reichu

The movies function on their own terms. If people can't accept them on those terms, and keep expecting them to be NGE, then they probably should have realized a while ago that they weren't going to have a good time. ~ Words of wisdom courtesy of Reichu

Great video king, finished watching it (actually found it through Youtube recommendations and realized you posted it here) and I firmly agree w/ your thesis if we're assuming that the design of Tokyo-III was made with the intent of protecting inhabitants. But I'm thinking, given the nature of NERV, SEELE, and the post-Impact governments that sequestered resources to build the city, it might be that these were not designed to protect and support the inhabitants -- but to protect and support the Evas.

That's ultimately not what the individual architects and such probably intended as a design, but I'm sure most of the Tokyo-III urban planners must have realized that they were effectively contracting out to an ultimately single-minded organization, all things considered. Curious to hear your thoughts on that. Really dig the work.
