Building The Japanese House

How do you build a Japanese house? Rather, how do you build two of them, to 1:1 scale, inside an Art Gallery?

From wall construction to painting, kitchen supplies and foliage – watch The Japanese House exhibition take shape in our timelapse as we speed through the four week installation process in 2 minutes.

See how we built 10 unique units, designed by Ryue Nishizawa, around the concrete pillars for the Moriyama House within the gallery while Terunobu Fujimori’s specially commissioned tea house for the Barbican emerges within its own magical garden next door…

Thanks to Site Eye for their help creating the timelapse.

The Japanese House: Life and Architecture after 1945 is now open, until 23 June 2017
