Toyo Ito

Transformations by Wind

'86 Nov.17-Dec.20

This exhibition focuses on seven of Toyo Ito's more notable projects, include "Silver Hut"(1984), "Restaurant Nomad"(1986), as well chairs and tables he has designed using aluminim mesh. Behind Ito's work lies his assertion that humans, by returning to nature and interacing with its most primitive and natural elements, are forced to once again confront the physical sensations evoked by their artificial surroundings. Ito aspires to an architecture that is freer, lighter, and able to blend with its surroundings. The exhibition enables visitors to experience a refreshing sense of release.
