Celebrate its 15th anniversary, exhibition “Japan in Architecture: Genealogies of Its Transformation” will be held at Mori Art Museum from April 25th to September 17th, 2018.

Japanese architecture today attracts attention from all over the world. Numerous architects, from Kenzo Tange to Yoshio Taniguchi, Tadao Ando, Kengo Kuma, Kazuyo Sejima and other young upcoming architects have received great international acclaim. Founded on rich traditions that have stretch back to ancient times, contemporary Japanese architecture encompasses exceptionally creative and original ideas and expressions.

Structured around nine sections based on key concepts for interpreting architecture in Japan today, this exhibition traces the lineage of architecture from ancient times until the present, and explores the elements of genealogy undermined by modernism and concealed beneath, yet undeniably vital still. Featuring important architectural materials, models, and interactive exhibits, the wide-ranging exhibits will illuminate not only the state of Japanese architecture in the past and present but also a vision of the future.
