Japanese architect celebrated in a monographic show at the Fondation Cartier, Paris


Japanese architect Junya Ishigami, who won the Golden Lion at the 2010 Venice Biennale, is the subject of a forthcoming monographic show at the Jean Nouvel-designed Fondation Cartier in Paris. It is both Ishigami’s first major solo exhibition, and the first dedicated to an architect to be staged by the Fondation.

Presenting 20 architectural projects in Europe and Asia, the exhibition comprises large-scale models, films and drawings documenting the stages of construction. Plants and landscape – both inside and outside buildings – play an important role in many of the works on show, which include the Kanagawa Institute of Technology Workshop in Japan, completed in 2008, and a new lecture hall in a Dutch park.
