"A Testament" Mourning for Kunio Mayekawa

'86 Aug.18-Aug.27

This is a memorial exhibition dedicated to one of modern Japanese architecture's great masters, Kunio Mayekawa. Mayekawa is revered in the Japanese architecture world for his devotion to the cause of modernist architecture. His almost obstinate dedication to his cause earned him a reputation as a brave warrior who boldly accepted the challenges before him, yet remained immune to fads and trends. Well after his death, he remains highly respected. His study structures and their characteristically profound and steadfast style distinguish him as a man of great determination who until the very end his life staunchly asserted his own architectural vision.
