The exhibition “Architecture and Memory – A dialogue between Italy and Japan through the works by Yumu Kori and Luca Zevi” has opened in the year marking the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Italy and Japan. It represents a very special meeting between an Italian and a Japanese architect who have been discussing architectural themes for years. The exhibition opened on 11 October at the Italian Cultural Institute (IIC) in Tokyo at 7:00 p.m. Prior to the official opening, Kori and Zevi gave a lecture explaining how memory, respect for traditions and a love of nature had on their work. They also discussed and highlighted the differences and common points existing between architecture in Italy and in Japan. The exhibition, organized by the IIC, will run till 26 October. The works, concentrating on the theme of memory, are presented through a series of panels. These panels illustrate, together with their projects, two ideas of architecture, their differences and commonalities.
