Terunobu Fujimori: Architecture with Nature, and “ROJO”at Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art
29th September - 3rd December, 2017 | Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art
Terunobu Fujimori, who was born in 1946, lived in Chino City, Nagano Prefecture until he graduated from high school. After graduating from Tohoku University, he entered the University of Tokyo graduate school. After making a great achievement as the leading expert in modern history of architecture and history of cities, Fujimori, at the age of 44, made his debut as an architect designing Jinchokan Moriya Historical Museum in Chino City, Nagano in 1991. Since then, he has been producing more than forty original creative architectural works in about 25 years.
A house with dandelions and leeks growing on the roof and a teahouse with pillars of unpeeled timber which looks like a birdhouse: ―the Fujimori’s work is known as extremely ingenious architecture that shows us both originality that exceeds conventional architectural ideas and nostalgia reminiscent of the distant past. official website ›› https://www.hiroshima-moca.jp/en/exhibition/terunobu_fujimori/
