About the Exhibition
This year TOTO GALLERY·MA is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its founding. To mark this occasion we are inviting architects from a range of Asian regions including Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, China, and Japan to hold an exhibition and a series of commemorative events in Tokyo, Sapporo, Sendai, Kyoto, Fukuoka, and Okinawa. These events, which will bring together people who are connected by the common factor of being Asian but who have diverse backgrounds, will aim to get participants to share their stories, recognize their differences, and attempt to identify common themes for the future at this present moment in time in which our ever-changing circumstances make it difficult for us to imagine the world of tomorrow. We hope that we all will be able to take our next step forward together by confirming through this project that the critical perspectives with which we look at the places where we are grounded and the sincere practices that we engage in in our daily lives can yield the power to open up a new "everyday".
