In 2002, Yokohama City launched the 'Creative City Yokohama' projects to rejuvenate its inner-city area by promoting arts, cultural activities, and tourism. The projects focused on the conservation and use of historical buildings Yokohama has been known for. Published by BankART1929 in cooperation with Yokohama City, this book records the backgrounds and developments of the projects through various interviews and discussions with Yokohama city policy planners, administrators, art and urban design advisors, and art NPO workers who were involved with the projects.
