Renowned Japanese architect Ryoji Suzuki will be exhibiting his work at the Monash University later this month. To run from 26 May till 9 June at the Monash University Art, Design and Architecture (MADA) Gallery on the Caulfield Campus, this will be Suzuki’s first comprehensive exhibition outside of Japan.
Suzuki is renowned for multimedia architectural projects such as Osaka Folly 4 (1990), Sagishima Project (1995), Project Konpira (2004) and the award winning Dubhouse film (2013). The Ryoji Suzuki Material Experiences exhibition, curated by Associate Professor Ari Seligmann and MADA architecture students, is the first assemblage and analysis of Suzuki’s work outside of Japan.
The exhibition illuminates the ideas and outcomes of Suzuki’s ongoing series of Experience in Material projects, demonstrating how architectural ideas are explored and materialised in multimedia forms.
Suzuki will be in Australia for the opening of the exhibition and will participate in a workshop with the exhibition team discussing his work and the analysis produced.
