Make Do With Now

Alternative Trends in Japanese Architecture

New architectural models of social and ecological Commitment

Exhibition at S AM Schweizerisches Architekturmuseum: 11 November 2022 to 12 March 2023

Make Do With Now presents a new view of Japanese architecture and introduces a young, as yet little known generation of architects and designers. These are demanding a sincere engagement with social, economic and ecological problems under the influence of, among other things, the experience of the Tohoku earthquake and the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011. Their creative handling of limited resources, found materials and existing building stock helps them in their search for responses to the urgent issues confronting us today.

By means of written contributions and photographic essays the publication provides insight into more than twenty current projects and takes a closer look at five architecture practices. This gives readers a multifaceted impression of the innovative concepts which are driving architecture in Japan today.

With projects by Fuminori Nousaku & Mio Tsuneyama, tomito architecture, dot architects and others.
