The Development of Modern Architecture in Japan
as Seen in Historical Documents
Open Hours 10:00〜16:30
Open throughout the exhibition period


The Meiji, Taisho, and Showa periods were times of great change in Japan.

Architecture, too, was pressed to embrace construction techniques introduced from the West. The architects and engineers who resolutely took on this challenge quickly absorbed the new techniques and managed to successfully carry out the modernization of Japan’s architecture. They then went on to create world-class works of architecture after World War II. In what ways did technical innovation take place in this process, and how did these changes reshape architecture in Japan? This exhibition sheds light on these questions by tracing the development of Japanese architecture through a presentation of precious historical materials preserved by various construction companies and universities.
