If you've ever had the pleasure of visiting Japan, you'll know that they do the domestic space thing really rather different over there. To be honest, it's a hell of a lot better - and we're not just thinking of the heated toilet seats, though we do think about them often and for longer than we should. This thing shines a light on Japanese architecture from 1945 to now: a field that has brought some of the most extraordinary and influential examples of contemporary design. With major cities flattened after the war, architects sought to create a new form of social housing and they've not stopped since: constantly evolving designs to reflect the changing society, the structure of the family and lifestyle habits. Among the numerous highlights here is a 1:1 recreation of Ryue Nishizawa’s Moriyama House that you can wonder around in, art, film, photography and no end of models and reconstructions. It really is a tranquil and informative thing to see and we thoroughly recommend immersing yourself in a country often held up as the pinnacle in domestic design.
