The Architecture of Japan: Natural Materials Meet Traditional Techniques
Time Out says
Taking on the history of Japanese architecture from the Asuka period (538-710) to the 21st century, this ambitious exhibition is set to occupy three Tokyo venues – the National Museum, the National Museum of Nature and Science and the National Archives of Modern Architecture – in late 2020. Intricate architectural models will be employed to highlight the characteristics of various building styles, while the programme, co-presented by the Japan Cultural Expo, will also feature guided architecture tours. In addition, visitors will be able to learn about Japan's traditional wooden architecture, which was nominated for the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list in 2018, through displays that highlight everything from specific techniques to how the next generation of artisans is trained.
Note: The dates and opening hours of this exhibition may change due to the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak. Please see the official website for the latest details.
