Japon, l’archipel de la maison

The Japanese house has captivated and intrigued many people for some time, but it also raises questions about habitability. The exhibition offers a historical perspective and a clear context to understand the development of this living room. The exhibition shows ‘Yesterday’s Homes’ (Tadao Ando, Toyo Ito), ‘Today’s Homes’ (Shigeru Ban Architects, Yasushi Horibe) and ‘Tokyo Homes’.


Yesterday’s Homes

Fourteen case studies of famous twentieth century homes, which are considered important precedents due not only to the living conditions they support, but also how they respond to the natural and built environment that surrounds them.

Tokyo Homes

A photographic documentary comprised of thirty-six house "portraits" and the environments they are situated in.

Today’s Homes

Twenty case studies of houses that include interviews with their inhabitants and the architects, drawings, photographs and videos.
