From the Toki-no-Wasuremono archives since 1995
In this exhibition, we are focusing on ISOZAKI's "Tsukuba Center Building" (1983), the representative work of his post modern movement and exhibiting print works related to it along with furnitures designed by Shiro KURAMATA, which were used in former Tsukuba Daiichi Hotel. There are also acrylic objets by KURAMATA and chairs designed by ISOZAKI.
"Tsukuba Center Building" was designed and built by Arata ISOZAKI in 1983 with Tsukuba Daiichi Hotel in it, where Shiro KURAMATA designed guest room interiors. However, those original furnitures used in these guest rooms were struck with fate.
After the corruption of the bubble economy in 1990s, management organization of the hotel bankrupted in 2005 and the management of the hotel was passed onto Hotel Okura Group. At this point, a major rennovation has taken place and those precious Shiro KURAMATA design interiors were lost.
"Writing desk" and "Mirrors" exhibitied in this exhibition are very rare pieces which survived above incident.
