Mori Art Museum Japan in Architecture: Genealogies of Its Transformation

April 25 [Wed] – September 17 [Mon], 2018

Showcasing the Skills, Spirits and Forms of Captivating Japanese Architecture via 100 Projects to Date

Having developed over centuries, from the founding of the world’s oldest example of sophisticated wooden architecture, the Horyuji Temple, in the 150 years since the Meiji Restoration, Japanese architecture has diversified enormously through the considerable experimentation of the modern era, coming to capture worldwide attention. Japanese architecture is known for the originality of its concepts and their expression, grounded in rich and ancient traditions.
Is there something in Japan’s DNA that has made this possible? And if so, what? “Japan in Architecture: Genealogies of Its Transformation” will showcase 100 projects from dwellings of the Jomon period, to the latest contemporary architecture, via a multifaceted display of over 400 items ranging from invaluable materials and models, to experiential installations. As globalization brings growing homogeneity, this will be an excellent opportunity to explore the future prospects for architecture with a high degree of originality.
