From March 30 to June 10, 2018, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain presents Freeing Architecture, the first major solo exhibition devoted to the work of Junya Ishigami. An important and singular figure of Japan’s young architecture scene, Ishigami—winner of the Golden Lion award at the Venice Biennale of Architecture in 2010—is the creator of a conceptual and poetic body of work in which the landscape oc­cupies an important place.

For the exhibition Freeing Architecture, conceived specifically for the Fondation Cartier, Ishigami re­veals 20 of his architectural projects in Asia and in Europe. These projects will be presented through a series of large-scale models, accompanied by films and drawings, which document their different stages of conception and construction. In dialogue with Jean Nouvel’s iconic building, this exhibition-event is also the first large-scale monograph that the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain has de­voted to an architect.
