Ends in 13 days
National Archives of Modern Architecture (NAMA) is pleased to present “Tange Kenzo 1938-1970: From the Pre-war Period to the Olympic Games and World Expo” as its summer special exhibition. 2021 is the year of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo. Looking back, architect Tange Kenzo played a leading role in realizing both the Tokyo Olympic Games in 1964 and the Osaka World Expo in 1970. At National Archives of Modern Architecture, Agency for Cultural Affairs of Japan, we have made use of our research findings on architectural materials related to Tange Kenzo from the past three years (2014-2016) and have organized this exhibition tracing his career from his graduation thesis to the Tokyo Olympics and the Osaka Expo. In this exhibition, we will retrace and explore the first half of Tange’s life through architectural materials for his national projects such as Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and Yoyogi National Gymnasium, as well as for other projects including an addition to his own house and structural studies that have not been presented before.
