poster for Tokujin Yoshioka “Kou-an Glass Tea House”

This event has ended.

Yoshioka has been interested in the Japanese conception of nature which is characterized by its distinctive spacial perception that involves the sensory realization of the surrounding atmosphere through what may be described as signs of energies or aura. Such a sensual appreciation of nature’s intrinsics and beauty can be recognized in Japanese tea ceremony practice. This project originates in the architecture plan of the Transparent Japanese House, first presented in 2002. The idea has been developed into a transparent teahouse, an architectural project incorporating a symbolic Japanese cultural image. The design of the project was presented at Glasstress 2011, the collateral event of the 54th La Biennale di Vennezia. This is the first time that the completed full-scale work of ” Kou-an ” is exhibited in the world.



from April 09, 2015 to September 10, 2017
Exhibition hours: 09:00-19:00. Last day of exhibition to be confirmed.
