Terunobu Fujimori: Architecture with Nature, and "ROJO"

March 11, 2017, to May 14, 2017

Terunobu Fujimori, who was born in 1946, lived in Chino City, Nagano Prefecture until he graduated from high school. After graduating from Tohoku University, he entered the University of Tokyo graduate school. After making a great achievement as the leading expert in modern history of architecture and history of cities, Fujimori, at the age of 45, made his debut as an architect designing Jinchokan Moriya Historical Museum in Chino City, Nagano in 1991. Since then, he has been producing more than forty original creative architectural works in about 25 years.

A house with dandelions and leeks growing on the roof and a teahouse with pillars of unpeeled timber which looks like a birdhouse:―the Fujimori’s work is known as extremely ingenious architecture that shows us both originality that exceeds conventional architectural ideas and nostalgia reminiscent of the distant past.

In this exhibition, conforming to the themes of ‘how natural materials can be adopted to contemporary architecture’ and ‘how plants can be incorporated into architecture,’ which Fujimori has been tackling in order to regain the relationship between architecture and nature, we introduce architect Terunobu Fujimori’s works through his representative architecture with sketches, models and photographs, as well as sample materials used for roofs, walls, plastering, etc. and furniture in his architecture.

From the series K2, 2015

Naoki Ishikawa Capturing the Map of Light on This Planet

December 17, 2016, to February 26, 2017

This is the first large-scale solo exhibition by Naoki Ishikawa, a photographer who is active around the globe. Ishikawa completed a human-powered journey from the North Pole to the South Pole at the age of 22, succeeded in summiting the Seven Summits at 23, and continues to journey to diverse places. He has drawn much attention by shedding new light on our everyday and on the world through his unique style of photography, which integrates the perspectives of anthropology and folklore.

In this exhibition Ishikawa’s early works through the present—numerous series including ones on polar regions, Himalayan eight-thousanders and old-growth forests in New Zealand; CORONA, in which he visited Polynesian islands as if guided by the stars; NEW DIMENSION, in which he visited cave paintings around the world; and ARCHIPELAGO, in which he explored the islands that spread north–south in the Japanese archipelago, among others—are introduced in a comprehensive fashion, interwoven with his unpublished works.
