Metabolism was a post-war Japanese architectural movement concerned with megastructures and biological ideas. One of its most iconic buildings was a tower built for EXPO’70 in Osaka. This tower inspired a fictional spaceship housing Earth’s last trees in an artificial biosphere in the Eco-SciFi movie Silent Running. My search for this tower lead me to a machine called Space Echo and a mine on the moon. In German, Metabolism is „Stoffwechsel“, and this will be a story about Stoffwechsel in the narrative sense, indeed.
