Architect OTAKA Masato and Kamakura Annex

May 27 - September 3, 2017

The Kamakura Annex was designed by the architect OTAKA Masato (1923-2010) and opened in 1984. The building was in stark contrast to the light-hearted impression of the Kamakura building (designed by SAKAKURA Junzo, closed in 2016). Here, thematic exhibitions featuring works mainly from the museum collection have been held and contemporary sculpture, one of our fortes, have been introduced in the front garden. Prior to the temporary though long-term closure of the Annex for improvements, the activities undertaken over the past thirty-three years are looked back on through the collection and reference materials exhibited at the Kamakura Annex with focus on Otaka's work from the point of view of its relation with Le Corbusier, MAYEKAWA Kunio, and HIJIKATA Teiichi.
