"Architect Tokyo 2009" Exhibition

Eye of Gyre

This event has ended.

This exhibition of works by architects is organized by five of Tokyo's leading internationally-oriented contemporary art galleries. While works of contemporary art continue to be collected and preserved, there are still few research-oriented public bodies or institutions in Japan that are dedicated to exhibiting artworks. In the same way, architectural models and diagrams are simply discarded without being circulated abroad or properly archived. Featuring important architectural materials and models, this exhibition hopes to convey something of the uniqueness of contemporary Japanese architecture, while also providing an opportunity for considering the current state of archiving and conservation of architectural resources in Japan.

Participating galleries: Tomio Koyama Gallery, Taro Nasu, Gallery Koyanagi, hiromiyoshii, Taka Ishii Gallery, and Aoyama Meguro.



From 2009-08-01 To 2009-08-30

GYREでの「ARCHITECT TOKYO 2009」展、正直イマイチだった。テーマで「WEB時代の~」と言っているわりに、まったくそれとは無関係のいつものレビューのような感じ(しかもこじんまり)。唯一、徳山氏の図面(石上純也氏のプロジェクト用)のみ、興味をひいた。全体にキュレーションがやっつけだ。ポンピドーとの関係を謳っているが、これまたいつもの日本人のせこい建築家にありがち「他人のふんどしを借りて」であり、実際はポンピドーでの将来の展覧会とは全く関係がない。期待する「次の時代の日本の建築のビジョン」など見えてこない。だいたい、日建設計のを除けば、十年以上も昔のプロジェクトやどこかでみたものばかりではないか。
