  • The Prolific World of TOGO MURANO: From the Memorial Cathedral for World Peace

    Togo Murano (1891-1984), one of Japan’s preeminent architects, designed a host of individualistic buildings based on his unique architectural concepts. In 2006, Murano’s Memorial Cathedral for World Peace (1954), located in Hiroshima, became the first postwar building in Japan to be designated as an Important Cultural Property. Among this exhibition’s highlights will be a series of blueprints, illustrating various trials and errors that led up to the cathedral’s present form. In addition, this introduction to Murano’s wide-ranging work, created over a 60-year period, will include models and original drawings for numerous other buildings.
