The exhibition promoted as part of the Tokyo Culture Creation project presents models, drawings, images and multimedia installations reflecting the experience of architects and artists who have addressed the most recent environmental and urban issues, including some well-known names: Frank O. Gehry, Toyo Ito, Kazuyo Sejima?Ryue Nishizawa/SANAA, Wim Wenders.
The architects present their research in the design of spaces which take advantage of the possibilities offered by the environment around them and introduce people to new experiences. In this sense the exhibition space is also designed to offer visitors an experience based primarily on involvement of the body and not just the eyes.
