"The Architecture of Fumihiko Maki: Modernity and the Construction of Scenery"
2001-05-17 until 2001-07-22
Victoria and Albert Museum
Fumihiko Maki (born 1928) is one of Japan's leading architects. His buildings are renowned for their fusion of Eastern and Western design, but are still firmly rooted in the modern tradition. This exhibition, a collaborative production between the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the VandA and Fumihiko Maki, focuses on the Hillside Terrace project in Tokyo as well as other recent buildings and projects that mirror these interests.
The development of Maki's modernist vocabulary will be presented in a variety of media, including sketches, drawings, scale models and video.
This exhibition is part of JAPAN 2001.
The V&A is hosting a series of exhibitions and events to celebrate Japan 2001 from May 2001 to March 2002. Japan 2001 is a country-wide initiative aimed to expand the links between the UK and Japan and to introduce Japanese culture to a wider UK audience. Strongly supported by the British and Japanese Prime Ministers, Japan 2001 will help further relationships between the two countries. The Prince of Wales and the Crown Prince of Japan are the Joint Patrons.
