Kengo Kuma Exhibition 2020-2021

Five purr-fect points for a new public space

Venue: Kochi Museum of Art When: Nov 3rd - Jan 3rd 2021

Kengo Kuma is a renowned Japanese architect who has a broad portfolio of impressive designs, including the likes of Tokyo's Nezu Museum, Sunny Hills Aoyama, and the Asakusa Culture and Tourism Center to name just a few. A special exhibition taking place at the Kochi Museum of Art looks at Kuma's designs from a unique perspective - a feline point of view. Concepts like holes, softness, and time are just some of the cat-like approaches that Kuma thinks of when approaching a new architectural piece.

The exhibition will look at 30 of Kuma's architectural works, with explanations of his thought-processes while creating them.

Adult admission to the event is priced at 1300 yen.

Getting there

The Kochi Museum of Art is located approximately 20 minutes by taxi from the JR Kochi station, served by the Dosan Line.

For those who plan to drive to the museum, the venue is around 15 minutes drive from the Nankoku IC or 10 minutes drive from the Kochi IC on the Kochi Expressway. Free parking is available on-site for up to 144 vehicles.

Love Kengo Kuma and associates work. I missed his last exhibition at the Kadokawa Culture Museum (which he also designed), glad to see he has other exhibitions.

I haven't heard (yet!) about it moving, but I think since his architecture is so popular that it definitely has the potential to. It is a really unique way to look at things, isn't it? I guess that's why his designs are so fun and different!
