Curator Yuma Shinohara’s tour to “Make Do With Now: New Directions in Japanese Architecture”

Estonian Museum of Architecture welcomes to the curators tour to the exhibition “Make Do With Now: New Directions in Japanese Architecture”. Curator of the exhibition Yuma Shinohara (S AM Swiss Architecture Museum) sheds light on an emerging generation of architects and urban practitioners in Japan.

The tour is in English and you have to buy a a museum ticket to participate.

“Make Do With Now” introduces the thinking and projects of a new generation of architects and urban practitioners working in Japan today. Born between the mid-1970s and mid-1990s, the architects featured in the exhibition largely entered professional practice following the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Fukushima nuclear disaster. This is a generation that must grapple with a range of urgent problems, including a declining of cities, ageing population and an emptying countryside; the proliferation of vacant houses across the nation; profit-driven urban development, mostly without the involvement of architects; a stagnant economy; and, of course, the global climate crisis.

The exhibition „Make Do With Now. New Directions of Japanese Architecture“ in Estonian Museum of Architecture is open until April 28, 2024.
