The annual public event that showcases the museum’s architectural and interior beauty

This annual event is an exhibition that opens up the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum’s building (formerly the residence of Prince Asaka) to public viewing to explore the beauty of its architecture. This time round, the event throws a spotlight on the materials used for the building’s interiors, including the wood, stone, tiles, wallpaper and furniture. The exhibition analyzes the materials and the construction techniques used, as well as the craftsmen and businesses employed for the work, through documents at that time including project specifications and catalogues. In addition to shedding new light on the people who sustained Japan’s manufacturing industry, the event shows visitors how this building can been seen and enjoyed as a cultural property.
