The Japanese contemporary architecture in Switzerland exhibition “JP-CH 2014: Building in Context” opened its doors on Wednesday with a press-event in the afternoon and a lecture by Star-Architect Kengo Kuma in the evening.
The exhibition, initiated by the Science & Technology Office Tokyo of the Embassy of Switzerland and set up in collaboration with Archizoom from EPFL and the Design University in Geneva, HEAD, showcases five projects built in Switzerland by four Japanese architectural offices, namely Shigeru Ban, Kengo Kuma, Riken Yamamoto and Sanaa.
Already on the opening day, the exhibition attracted a great number of visitors to the design-oriented exhibition space, Spiral Garden in Tokyo’s Aoyama district. The exhibition will be open every day from 11am to 8pm from October 8 to 15. In addition to the exhibition, three lectures will be held: Kengo Kuma (Oct. 8), Riken Yamamoto (Oct. 13) and Sanaa (Oct. 15).
