About the exhibition - DOOR ON THE PRAIRIE 草原上之門

The exhibition of architecture consists entirely the full set of the installation based on his latest group exhibition 'Where is architecture? Seven installations by Japanese Architects' at the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo (MOMAT) in Japan held early 2010 and the Shenzhen & Hong Kong Bi-city Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture in 2009. The installation Door on the Prairie is based on the award-winning proposal for a tea house competition in Hokkaido, Japan in 2008. He tries to display how a 'large door' would look if it was reduced to a third of its original size and we feel when we were walking in the instalation. The visitors then experience the gentle rewriting of the relationship between space, nature and the human being.
