“Parallel Nippon contains 100+ large-scale photo panels of landmark designs, architectural models and video footage. The exhibition is divided into four thematic sections: Urban, Life, Culture and Living, a cross-sectional view of Japanese society. These areas represent the revolutionary, innovative and progressive architectural achievements realised not only in Japan but across the world as projects of Japanese architects.” http://www.perth.au.emb-japan.go.jp/en/top_whatsnew/2013parallel_nippon.html
I thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon drooling over architectural models and planning a Japanese architectural travel itinerary with equally enthusiastic architect friends.

One thought on “Parallel Nippon – an exhibition I liked”
Planning travel to Japan for architectural interests?
A great idea!
