Grand Australian Architecture Exhibition Launches in Tokyo
A significant architectural exhibition that showcases Australian eye-opening innovation, diverse lifestyles and rich culture, launched at the Sky Gallery 3 of the Roppongi Hills in central Tokyo as a program highlight for Australia now.
On the evening of 6 July, prior to the public viewing of the exhibition, top architects, artists and architecture students from both Australia and Japan who were involved in the project, gathered on the 52nd floor of the Mori Tower to celebrate the occasion.
We were honored to have been able to welcome the attendance of Her Imperial Highness Princess Takamado at the reception.
Leading into the reception, a group of Japanese journalists expressed a keen interest in the exhibition.
Wendy Lewin, an internationally-recognised architect who curated the exhibition, and her Japanese counterpart and architect Prof. Sohei Imamura led the media tour and explained the significance of sustainable architectural designs.
Most of the architectural models presented at the exhibition had been constructed through the collaboration of both Australian and Japanese university students.
The exhibition could not have been realised without the passion and dedication of the students from both countries.We are happy to promote this international exchange between youths from both countries.
On the first day of the public viewing, eight Australian architects gave talks to visitors who came to see the exhibition. Enthusiastic architecture fans viewed the exhibition while meeting and asking questions of leading Australian architects.
This high-quality exhibition is being held at the Mori Tower until 26 August.
We invite you to visit this iconic Australia now project to enjoy Australian innovative architectural projects, as well as to enjoy outstanding view of Tokyo from the Sky Gallery!
