Toyo Ito "The New 'Real' in Architecture"

poster for Toyo Ito "The New 'Real' in Architecture"

This event has ended.

Known for his use of the lightness and transparency of glass, his organic structures that appear to move, his fusion of new technologies with handmade techniques, and for his realization of hitherto impossible architectural feats, Toyo Ito is one of the world's leading contemporary architects. The critical acclaim he receved for the epoch-making work he created at the Sendai Mediatheque in 2001, was the impetus for his becoming an internationally renowned architect.
This exhibition presents a series of displays of his architectural experiments, illustrating the logic behind the development of his work.

A return to the real
By Julian Worrall
Special to The Japan Times

Ito spent the last decades of the 20th century exploring the idea of an architecture for the "virtual" body -- the parallel self that lives on the incessant diet of electronic information in the modern metropolis. In this decade, however, Ito has decisively swerved away from this path to re-engage the forceful physicality of the structural and material dimensions of architecture. He has returned to the "real."

建築ゆえの体感型の展示と鑑賞。
建築は本来触れることで知る部分も多いはずだ。
今回の体験には新しい刺激を感じた。
写真美術館の「パラレル・ニッポン」展と共に見に行った人間は多いのではないだろうか。
