Built Environment: An Alternative Guide to Japan

The Japan Foundation, Kuala Lumpur together with REXKL and Malaysian Institute of Architects (PAM) and Embassy of Japan in Malaysia will be organising an exhibition titled "Built Environment" this coming June. This exhibition has previously travelled to Indonesia, South Korea, and India before coming here to Malaysia as a part of Kuala Lumpur Architecture Festival (KLAF) 2019 organised by PAM that will be held from 21 June to 7 July 2019.

The exhibition features 80 examples of buildings, civil engineering works and landscapes, etc., from all prefectures in Japan, introduced through photographs, text and video images. It presents a rarely considered aspect of Japan, taking the built environment in various regions of a country that is geographically diverse and often struck by natural disasters, with the aim of examining how Japanese people have engaged and struggled with the natural environment and how they have carried on and created locality.

Come join us to experience “an alternative guide to Japan”!
