MINI Metropolis is a city that is gradually growing, yet smaller in scale than metropolises, such as New York, Tokyo and London, and with a slower transformation growth rate than mega cities, such as Mumbai and Shanghai. Cities like Boston, Seattle, Zurich, Kyoto, Barcelona and so on, have certain metropolitan qualities and conditions, but are not considered as world capital metropolises. While urbanisms these days mostly focuses on extreme conditions, such as density, congestion, fast growth, shrinking, or even fatality, MINI Metropolis and MINI Metropolitanism focus on built environments of less extreme, more stable, and yet gradually growing cities, and tries to generate various conversations about the future growth of each MINI Metropolis.
