Toru Murakami

Architecture as Objects of Place

'93 Sep.3-Oct.9

The exhibition space is done all in white. The only items actually on exhibit are this white floor, and the floaring white models of twelve residences encased in transparent plastic. Just as with the actual residences, this unornamented space suddenly evokes the physical sensibilities and brilliance of the architect. For Murakami, materials, walls and floors are more than the structual elements of architecture. People can enjoy the same experience as they do in Murakami's actual architecture. The white color and the concrete fade away, and gallery space is wrapped only in the softness of natural lighting.
