The Japanese House: Architecture and Life After 1945In 2017, the Barbican hosts the first major UK exhibition on Japanese domestic architecture from the end of the Second World War to now. The Japanese House: Architecture and Life after 1945 looks at a field which has consistently produced some of the most influential and extraordinary examples of modern and contemporary design. In the wake of the war, the widespread devastation of Tokyo and other cities in Japan brought a desperate need for new houses, and the single family house soon became the foremost site for architectural experimentation and debate. This exhibition will showcase some of the most exciting architectural projects of the last 70 years, many of which have never before seen in the UK.
