A Moment: Tokyo under Construction Architecture Week: Presentation

Presented by JICC, Embassy of Japan and AIA DC

"A multimedia fusion of photography, fashion and music"

Experience Tokyo’s evolving landscape in this stylish multimedia presentation by photographer Hiroyuki Suzuki. Explore the raw edges and starkly beautiful landscapes of oft-forbidden construction sites through a mélange of images, video, fashion, and music. By training his lens on the exuberant energy inherent to the construction process, Suzuki captures the beauty of incompletion that stands in stark contrast to the functional beauty of finished structures. Having planned and produced fashion shows for designer Junko Koshino at Paris Fashion Week and around the world, Suzuki’s work highlights the unseen parallels between two seemingly separate worlds: fashion and construction. Mr. Suzuki will be on hand to answer questions and discuss his rare art of capturing cities under construction.

Architecture Week is a series of public events that celebrate architecture in the nation's capital. With this 12th celebration, it aims to shine a spotlight on something unique to Washington: the presence of foreign embassies and institutions with unique and interesting architectural heritages. This is the public's opportunity to see the best in Washington and world architecture!
