Special ExhibitionIMPOSSIBLE ARCHITECTURE: ANOTHER HISTORY OF ARCHITECTURE

As you look back at the history of architecture, you discover a host of outstanding concepts that never reached completion and stimulating ideas that were deliberately limited to proposals. Focusing on unfinished architecture projects by about 40 Japanese and foreign architects and artists since the 20th century, this exhibition interprets blueprints, models, films, and other related documents in an effort to envision as yet unseen examples of new buildings. These include structures, which despite being technically feasible, were never executed due to social conditions and restrictions; and proposals that placed greater emphasis on making a critical statement against existing institutions than realizing an actual building. The exhibition promises to provide an opportunity to consider visionary architectre for the future.
