This exhibition presents a comprehensive survey of fifteen years of Ishii's work. Beginning with "Naoshima Kindergarten"(1974), and extending through "Chrysler House"(1987), it centers on twenty-three models of residential architecture displayed so densely that they almost overlap with each other. In addition to the models, the surrounding walls have been covered entirely with additional supplemental materials. The exhibition is designed to provide visitors viewing models and photos of the actual works with a sense of the architect's eclectic talent for making historical allusions as well as for partly appropriating aspects of existing structures.
