Thursday 6th April: "The Japanese House" at The Barbican

"The Japanese House: Architecture and Life after 1945" at The Barbican is yet another transformation of their gallery space. I'm always so impressed at how each show utilises the open-plan gallery in such different ways. This exhibition is no exception! The top floor explores the history of Japanese architecture whilst the ground floor is an immersive set to get lost in whilst exploring. There is even a little mini house on stilts for which you have to take off your shoes to climb up into. It's great fun and a double-whammy of inspiration for any architecture fans as the Brutalist Barbican centre is a mind-blowing setting. And, make sure to check out the gift shop so you don't miss the Sushi Roll socks!
