Kumiko Inui + Tokyo University of the Arts Inui Lab “Little Spaces”
This event has ended.
Through recent engagements in the Home-for-All project in Rikuzentakata (2012), a redevelopment project for the area around Nobeoka Station in Miyazaki and school building projects in Shichigahama, Miyagi and Kamaishi, Iwate, architect Kumiko Inui has been brought to reconsider the diversity of the Japanese landscapes and the public spaces it offers for people to gather in. As a result of this interest she has initiated an urban research project conducted together with her students in the Tokyo University of the Arts Inui Lab.
This exhibition, titled “little spaces”, places its focus on the research materials that Inui, her students, and her staff members have gathered up to this date through their day-to-day investigations. Through continuing to take photographs of scenes they encountered across a period of over half a year in more than 200 municipalities in 45 prefectures, they have collected a total of over 18,000 photographs that they have categorized typologically to identify and analyze the various perspectives from which the photographs were taken. Here a selection of 200 photographs are on show alongside other research materials, provoking new thoughts towards the future of architectural construction.
