- Terunobu Fujimori: Architecture with Nature, and “ROJO”
Born in Chino, Nagano Prefecture, where he remained until graduating from high school, Terunobu Fujimori (b. 1946) attended Tohoku University and completed a post-graduate course at the University of Tokyo. After establishing himself as one of Japan’s foremost scholars of modern architectural and urban history, in 1991, Fujimori designed the Jinchokan Moriya Historical Museum in Chino, marking his debut as an architect at the age of 44. Since then, he has continued to make buildings that actively incorporate natural materials and vegetation. In addition to models and photographs, this exhibition will introduce Fujimori’s ingenious architectural works through samples from roofs and walls, furniture, and a tearoom.
