Gathering 20 groups of architectural projects, the first solo exhibition in China of Japanese architect, Venice Architecture Biennale’s winner of the Golden Lion award, Junya Ishigami, “Freeing Architecture”, presents Ishigami’s new definitions of architecture: buildings today are no longer just simple shelters, but diverse “sceneries” that make up the vast space of this world.
By using his mastery of environment, nature and scale, Ishigami transforms buildings into entirely new sceneries and thereby discovering entirely new worlds. The exhibition features the processes and details of Ishigami’s concept realization through large-scale models, architectural drawings, design manuscripts, and films.
