"Summer and Architecture" Exhibition
This event has ended.
One typical characteristic of Japanese architecture is the attention and effort devoted to making buildings tolerably cool enough to live in during the hot summers. With open-plan shoji doors, fusuma sliding screens, breezy spots shaded by greenery and verandahs, eaves and blinds, as well as cool interiors, Japanese architecture is well adapted to its summer environmental conditions. This exhibition introduces some of these features that have become such an indispensable addition to Japanese homes during the summer.
