Running from 24 June – 14 July, the exhibition will showcase 25 models of his work and celebrate the 25th anniversary of his Osaka-based studio, the Endo Shuhei Architect Institute.
Showing the architect’s signature use of curves and bends, the models appear economical but ultimately display a beauty in this use of form. The structures, largely made from corrugated steel, are expertly rolled and folded mimicking the bold style that Shuhei has become known for. They are never fully enclosed, alluding to an openness which can be found in the traditional architecture of Japan.
Having experienced various earthquakes in Japan, another key element in his work is the desire to design buildings that will protect people in the event of such a natural disaster.
Venue: TOTO Concept Showroom & Gallery, 140-142 St John Street, London EC1V 4UA
