Japan in Architecture: Genealogies of Its Transformation

icon-location-pin Roppongi

Structured as a time travel through Japan’s history of architecture, this veritable heaven for Japanese architecture fiends is divided into nine sections explaining architecture with themes such as ‘the possibility of wooden architecture’ or ‘coexistence with nature,’ supported by architectural blueprints, models and interactive installations. The highlight is a full-scale reproduction of the 'Tai-an', a tea ceremony house connected to Sen no Rikyu, a tea master from the 16th century. If your knowledge is a bit rusty, you can also read up in the book lounge, which is also full of fabulous modernist furniture.
