"20 Klein Dytham Architecture" Exhibition

Gallery Ma


Astrid Klein, Mark Dytham
The number 20 has a certain mystical quality. Ise Shrine is reconstructed every 20 years, and Tokyo itself is rebuilt on almost the same 20-year cycle. Fashions seem to come back into vogue every 20 years, and it is 20 years since Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham arrived in Japan, fresh from the Royal College of Art. In the years since they have established a boundary-less architectural office in Tokyo, and devised a simple presentation format for architects and designers that has spread to over 150 cities and is based on the same magic number - each presenter gets 20 images, each image shown for 20 seconds.

This exhibition, presented as KDa's 'coming of age', surveys all their work from soap sinks to interiors, construction fences to wedding chapels.
