Rome's Exhibition Dedicated to Japanese Architecture

A new exhibition will be on show at Rome's MAXXI dedicated to the beauty and evolution of Japanese architecture that gives an intriguing glance into Japanese culture.

The display is being edited by Pippo Ciorra in collaboration with Kenjiro Hosaka (from the National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo) and Florence Ostende (from the Barbican Centre in London, UK), and the Chief Adviser is Yoshiharu Tsukamoto from Atelier Bow-Wow and the Tokyo Institute of Technology.


The exhibition explores the importance of famous architects such as Kenzo Tange, Toyo Ito, Kazuyo Sejima and Shigeru Ban, as well as lesser-known masters, such as Shirai, Shinohara and Sakamoto. It is being co-organized by the Japan Foundation and MAXXI, and will surely be a treat for anyone interested in Japanese architecture and culture, including the blend of ancient traditions and technological advances in the construction of modern Japanese houses.

The exhibition beautifully presents the essential aspects of Japanese architecture in creating harmony between the human race, buildings and the environment through the use of drawings, models, vintage and contemporary photographs, videos and interviews with great Japanese artists.

The exhibition will be on display between November 9th 2016 and 26th February 2017.

Address: MAXXI, Via Guido Reni, 4/A, Rome.

Opening times: 11 am to 7 pm Tuesday to Sunday, with late night openings on Saturdays. The museum is closed on Mondays.
