Last week I visited A Japanese Constellation, the latest architecture exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art in New York. The show focuses on a community of Japanese architects that has developed around Toyo Ito and SANAA. The exhibition demonstrates the ways in which Ito is a mentor to a younger generation of Japanese architects including Kazuyo Sejima, Ryue Nishizawa, and Sou Fujimoto, among others.
Japanese brand MUJI provided translucent curtains and tables for the exhibition, which display intricate architectural models and video projections of major works. Highlights include models of SANAA’s 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan and Sou Fujimoto’s Serpentine Pavillon from 2013.
A Japanese Constellation is on view at MoMA through Monday, July 4.
