The Embassy of Japan and Victoria University of Wellington, in cooperation with The Japan Foundation are very pleased to announce that the Japan Foundation’s Travelling exhibition – “Struggling Cities: from Japanese Urban Projects in the 1960s”.

Entry is open to all!

In the 1960s Tokyo became a megacity. The population reached 20 million and continued growing rapidly. Newspapers were filled with articles about the problems caused by modernisation: traffic congestion, pollution, housing shortages and sinking ground.

This travelling exhibition examines various circumstances of cities in Japan and worldwide up to the present day, and identifies in particular the distinctive aspects of those circumstances as they are manifested in present-day Tokyo. You can expect to see everything from architectural scale models to photographs and slides, along with animations and other audio-visual elements.

Please refer to the Embassy of Japan’s website for more information about this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition: http://www.nz.emb-japan.go.jp/culture_education/exhibition2018.html
