Curator Kaijima Momoyo Explores Drawings from Around the World
This is the official English guide book to the Architectural Ethnography exhibit on show at the Japan Pavilion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale (May 26 – November 25, 2018).
Life obviously exceeds architecture. What does this mean for architecture?
How can the myriad situations that both feed into and result from the design of a building be effectively mapped?
How does one address architectural drawings, not just as simple notational systems but as instruments to document, discuss, and evaluate architecture?
How can they work to explore people's actual usages, needs, and aspirations, and moreover to give shape to individualized life forms in today's globalized society?
The catalog of the exhibition in the Japan Pavilion showcases a collection of forty-two projects from all over the world from the last twenty years,ranging from design specifications and spatial-activity charts, to maps of urban hybrids and large studies of rural farming and fishing villages following natural disasters,originating from university design studios, architectural offices, or artistic practices.
They all reflect the search for a new approach in drawing—of, for, among, around—society,
which we term “Architectural Ethnography."
