Kumamoto Artpolis: Architecture through Communication

With the goal of constructing municipal and private buildings in Kumamoto Prefecture, an innovative project called “Kumamoto Artpolis” was launched in 1988. The project set out to appoint eminent architects from both within and without the region to design a variety of distinguished buildings. Along with introducing representative works by the Japanese architects who participated in the project, this exhibition examines the effects the project has had on regional development and revitalization.
