About the Exhibition
TOTO GALLERY·MA is pleased to present Yasushi Horibe: Designing with Memory at the TOTO MUSEUM (Kitakyushu, Fukuoka). This is a traveling exhibition of architect Yasushi Horibe's well-received show A Human Space for Architecture (2017) that has been expanded with newly filmed movies.

Horibe's work is highly regarded for how it demonstrates an architecture of enduring value. In recent years, he has been expanding the scope of his activities beyond residential design, and his portfolio of more than 100 projects in Japan includes shops, community meeting spaces, and even a cruise ship. The first project he worked on after establishing his practice at age 26 was the design of two small buildings in Kagoshima. Supported by Kyushu's rich nature, relaxed atmosphere, and warm people, he has since continued to design projects in places across the region, including in Yakushima, Fukuoka, and Kumamoto.

This exhibition conveys the essence of Horibe's architecture through movies, photographs, models, and sketches of a selection of his notable projects, including the Dr. Norichika Maehara Memorial Museum, the Charnel House in Chikurin-ji (2016 AIJ Prize for Design), the Guntu cruise ship, and the "fca" model house in Fukuoka. The exhibition's Japanese title translates to "Towards A Nostalgic Future", and it reflects the architect's wish for us to move forward by continually creating architecture that connects the past and future through time. We hope that you will develop an appreciation of Horibe's firm belief that architecture must stand to preserve the timeless values that we hold dear today and form part of the landscapes that people will carry nostalgically within their hearts in the future.
