This event has ended.
Japan Swiss Architectural Association (JSAA) and the Embassy of Switzerland in Japan are pleased to announce the opening of the exhibition “The Last Act of Design” by Swiss architects Christ & Gantenbein. Christ & Gantenbein have recently completed significant projects in Switzerland, such as the Swiss National Museum and the Kunstmuseum Basel, and are regarded as one of the leading emerging architectural practices in Switzerland.
The exhibition presents a selection of photographs of the buildings of Christ & Gantenbein by Italian photographer Stefano Graziani, prints of architectural drawings especially re-edited for the occasion, and 3D-printed models showcasing 9 unrealized buildings designed since 2007. While providing a deep insight into Christ & Gantenbein’s work, the exhibition will also investigate the very tools available to communicate architecture, such as drawings, architecture models and photography. Suggesting a “last act of design,” the documents presented reflect on the way in which, once the design process is over, architecture can still be re-crafted by means of its manifold representation.
from March 20, 2019 to March 31, 2019
Exhibition Hours: 11:00–19:00. Closes at 17:00 on the last day.
