This event has ended.

Contemporary architecture today is attempting to break into the next stage of its development. Previously, the discipline was obsessed with how to prioritize functionality and practicality in residential, commercial and public buildings. In recent years, however, young Japanese architects have been remaking the urban spaces and environments of the city in innovative ways. This exhibition focuses on the work of the noted architect Sou Fujimoto in an attempt to consider the future of Tokyo and architecture in general.

The exhibition is designed like Fujimoto's houses and the visitor can really experience his architecture.
One of the best architectural events recently.

建築のことを専門的に知らなくても楽しめました。
3階はまさしく建築家の頭の中を
のぞき込むような体験ができます。
つまり洞窟は機能的ではないが、発見的である。

御託を並べるのではなく、実際に空間の中を歩かせることで感じ取らせよう。そんな意図が感じられる展覧会。見せ方も建築も斬新でした。
