This event has ended.

What can architects do to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and solve global warming? Twenty architects from thirteen countries propose answers for the key issue of the 21st century.

In Japan, the rigorous efforts made to solve the crisis of global warming by reducing carbon dioxide emissions are largely from an engineering viewpoint rather than an architectural one.

Those efforts are based on 20th century science and technology, the very principles that escalated this global crisis. Internationally renowned architects from all over the world contribute to this exhibition by presenting ideal architectural solutions for the 21st century. Drawing on the wisdom of the past, the proposals show how traditional architectural strategies for living in balance with nature may be re-interpreted for contemporary life and integrated with current technology to create a responsible and inspiring architectural culture.

A series of three public lectures will be held in conjunction with the exhibition. See website for details.
