From January 27th to February 28th, 2017, Vancouver’s Fairmont Pacific Rim will host an exhibition that celebrates contemporary Japanese architecture, design and culture. Japan Unlayered is designed to be a sensory experience that invites one to experience Japanese culture through touch, taste, sight, sound and smell.
Curated by master Japanese architect Kengo Kuma and developers-owners of Fairmont Pacific Rim, Westbank and Peterson, the exhibition will present Japanese traditions alongside contemporary design to illustrate that the defining principles of Japanese design remain the same despite the evolution of technology.
Part of this event will be a Vancouver exclusive MUJI “pop-up” pavilion, designed by Kengo Kuma using Canadian oak. In addition to an exhibition presenting MUJI’s concept, the brand’s signature products will be available for sale.
Additional details regarding the pop-up store will be released closer to the event. Information about Japan Unlayered will be announced on the event website: http://japanunlayered.com
