Gallery closed on Sunday, Monday, and national
Since our opening, Gallery Toki-no-Wasuremono has been introducing
prints and drawings by architects like Giovanni Battista Piranesi,
Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyed Wright, Ando Tadao, Isozaki Arata, and
others. In Japan, it's a commonly held conception that "architects"
= engineers who design "architecture" - however, we believe that
talented architects are indeed "artists" who design a human living
space. People who create space that strikes our psyches by simply
entering, people who imagine those kinds of architectures even if
they never exist - these are the kinds of architects whose works we

In this Le Corbusier Exhibition, we will present pieces which show
his variety of talents, including works from his famous series
"Unite", as well as tableware that he designed.
On the last day (April 6, Sat), we will hold the one day event
"Yoshikawa Seiichi's Architecture Book Sale". Yoshikawa Seiichi is
an architectural editor who works with companies such as
SUMAI Library Publishing Company.
