Sleek, simple and irresistible, Japan’s aesthetic sensibility has made a formidable impact on the design industry. Case in point, the Barbican’s latest exhibition, The Japanese House: Architecture and Life after 1945. On display until 25 June, the show wraps itself around the museum’s brutalist frame with a full scale reproduction of a 10-room Japanese home. Not one to missed, ‘the superb show doesn’t just tell the fascinating story of Japanese homes since the Second World War, it’s an lesson in how to exhibit architecture’ says the Evening Standard.
