9 Nov-26 Feb. The MAXXI Museo Nazionale delle Arti del XXI secolo presents an exhibition highlighting the importance of house design in Japan, showing the work of celebrated architects such as Kenzo Tange, Toyo Ito, Kazuyo Sejima and Shigeru Ban alongside their lesser-known contemporaries and a younger generation of Japanese architects.
The exhibition presents the essential elements of the Japanese house, showcasing the convergence of tradition and innovation, and the architectural harmony between mankind and the environment.
Drawings, models, video footage and photographs are displayed in an installation designed by Atelier Bow-Wow in collaboration with MAXXI.
The exhibition is co-organised by the Japan Foundation, the Barbican Centre in London, and Tokyo's Museum of Modern Art Tokyo.
