Friday, 18 November

Kazuo Shinohara (1925-2006) has influenced some of today’s greatest architects. His Umbrella House inspired and stimulated architectural discourse in 1960s Japan. In order to safeguard it for posterity, the house, first built in Tokyo in 1961, has now been reconstructed on the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein. Its opening will be accompanied by a book launch presenting a new publication about Umbrella House created in collaboration by Rolf Fehlbaum, the Vitra Design Museum, and Zürich-based architects Dehli Grolimund.
Admission to the event at the Vitra Schaudepot is free; register to attend at
