Japanese House: Architecture and Life after 1945
Updated: Apr 8, 2018
Today I decided to stop by the Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo to catch an amazing exhibit which was on it's last day. The show had traveled through Rome and London, before arriving back in Tokyo, and since I've already missed it in London, I was eager to finally catch it here today. The exhibition consisted of 75 houses by 56 groups of Japanese architects through more than 400 materials including models, plans, photographs and videos. It provided a window into the history of architectural thinking in Japan after the post-war period and I felt the show had managed to capture the different elements, such as culture, the economy, the political climate, that had shaped it's form.
