JAPAN: ARCHIPELAGO OF THE HOUSE
Curated by Professor Julian Worrall & Claire Beale
Exhibition | August 23rd–September 22nd, 2019
Preview | 6–8pm Thursday, August 22nd
Design Tasmania, in conjunction with the University of Tasmania, presents Japan: Archipelago of the House - an exhibition of contemporary Japanese architecture of the house and home.
Western design-consumers have long been fascinated with the novelty of Japanese domestic architecture: their material, space and philosophy confound their novelty. This is especially true for those that do not intimately know the practical, daily aspect of living in a Japanese house.
Japan: Archipelago of the House as an exhibition presents an immersive understanding of these rich and varied environments. Rather than purified vessels of linear idealism, the exhibition reveals these buildings as lively and inhabited environments, thoroughly embedded in the lives of the people and places they serve.
Featured architects include:
Kenzo Tange, Tadao Ando, Kunio Maekawa, Kazuo Shinohara, Antonin Raymond, Kiyonori Kikutake, Osamu Ishiyama, Riken Yamamoto, Toyo Ito and more.
Kengo Kuma, Atelier Bow-wow, Shigeru Ban, Go Hasegawa, Yasushi Horibe, Taira Nishizawa, Mikan, Hideyuki Nakamura, Diasuke Sugawara, Suppose Design Office, Tezuka Architects, Yasutaka Yoshimura and more.
Join us for preview drinks. This exhibition is to be officially opened by Richard Leplastrier AO.
