Interior Decorating in 1933: Architectural Materials and People at the Former Prince Asaka Residence
Ends in 35 days
Once per year, the Teien Art Museum hosts an exhibition to showcase the architectural beauty of our building, the Former Prince Asaka Residence, completed in 1933. This year’s exhibition focuses on elements of the interior design—wood, stone, tiles, wallpaper, and furniture—and introduces the materials and craftsmanship, as well as the carpenters and companies involved in construction, by drawing upon construction specification manuals, catalogs, and other documents from the time. This exhibition aims both to highlight the work of Japan’s artisans, and offer a new way of seeing and enjoying the architecture of this cultural property.
