This exhibition went on a tour to Rome and London and finally came to Tokyo which introduces 75 houses by 56 groups of Japanese architects. It just started recntly and will last until 29 October, 2017.
Japan has a unique history from the point of view of architecture. Most of the land was completely devastated during the war time and the rise of the post-war architecture coincided with the rapid economic recovery. There were urgent needs to build houses and residences throughout Japan, first to accommodate people after the war and then to support the rapid economic growth. The exhibition of the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo describes such history of Japanese architecture.
There are drawings, photographs, models, videos and actual sample of a Japanese house.
