Japan Society Gallery is pleased to present Made in Tokyo: Architecture and Living, 1964/2020, an ambitious and comprehensive exhibition examining the shifting socio-architectural landscape of Tokyo between the 1964 and 2020 Summer Olympics. By comparing these two significant periods of urban development, the exhibition explores the architectural challenges and opportunities of Tokyo, one of the world’s greatest metropolises. The Japanese architectural firm Atelier Bow-Wow, founded by Momoyo Kaijima and Yoshiharu Tsukamoto, takes on a double role as curator and exhibition designer, conceiving an exhibition which responds to the critical role of architecture in structuring society, its effect on people’s lives, and presents the transformation of this mega-city through the experiences of social, economic and political development.
