This event has ended.

Tsuyoshi Tane is a widely recognized emerging architect based in France and currently overseeing many projects in various locations in the world. Tane, as a co-founder of Dorell Ghotmeh Tane (DGT.) Architects surprised the world by winning an international design competition held by the Estonian National Museum in his twenties and gained much attention again when the museum was completed 10 years later in 2016. In 2012, DGT. was selected as one of eleven finalists for the New National Stadium Japan international design competition and their proposal Kofun Stadium was widely published in Japan and the world. After DGT. disbanded in 2017, Tane founded Atelier Tsuyoshi Tane Architects in Paris and is expanding the sphere of his activities. Two of Tane’s exhibitions are running concurrently under the common theme of “Archeology of the Future” and introduce the trajectory of Tane’s creative achievements and his challenge of exploring how architecture contributes to creating the future by looking into memories of a place. The exhibition at Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery, entitled “Digging & Building”, introduces Tane’s design method of digging and delving into memories of a place and taking a creative leap forward. It showcases his representative works created through this method including the Estonian National Museum, Kofun Stadium, and his latest projects using a variety of media including large-sized models and moving images in such a way that appeals to viewers’ physical senses. The exhibition at Toto Gallery Ma entitled “Search and Research” introduces the processes of Tane’s architectural thinking and speculation and presents a methodology of “Archeological Research” applied to all his projects. These two exhibitions aim to present a comprehensive view of Tane’s processes of search/research and its implementation through which he analyzes memories of a place from different angles to establish new perspectives and develop his ideas into architecture leading to the future. Memory influences the present and creates the future- Tane’s creative achievements based on this belief invite everyone to think about the potential, mission, and future possibilities of architecture.
