The architectonic models of 41 Japanese designers are on display at ARCHI DEPOT TOKYO, an exhibition at the Triennale di Milano from July 10 to 19, 2015.
Says the Archi Depot Foundation (Organization for the conservation of the culture of architecture), “They express the deepest inner spirit of an architectonic culture that thrives on the connections between the avant-garde and the memories of the past.” The foundation was created in 2015 by Terrada Warehouse and Tokyo Design Center companies to safeguard and conserve the models and designs of Japanese architectonic culture.
“The primary objective of the foundation is to conserve and present to the general public architectonic models that still play an important role in the transmission of the architects’ vision and thoughts to the public at large.”
“Using models created by a wide variety of Japanese architects – including Kengo Kuma, Tetsuo Furuichi, Shigeru Ban, Arata Isozaki, Koh Kitayama, Rike Yamamoto – with the core of the exhibition focusing on works by the younger generations, Archi Depot Tokyo Exhibition explores the visions of the architects and the enchanting qualities of their architecture, in order to transmit the important of the country’s past and its architectural heritage.”
Opening hours for the exhibition are 10:30 to 23:00 at the Triennale di Milano (Impluvium Hall, first floor), Viale Alemagna 6, 20121, Milan, Italy.
