We built an exhibition venue for the 16th edition of the Japan Media Arts Festival. For the present exhibition, we were tasked with creating a venue that would accommodate over 10,000 visitors on holidays, while providing an overview of prized works from the 4 divisions of Arts, Entertainment, Animation and Manga, beginning with the introduction of the festival and continuing onto career highlights of Lifetime Achievement Award recipients.

Here the plan calls for a main line of flow following a single line path around a U-shaped venue with fin-like walls erected on both sides to divide the space according to the type of work presented. Consideration was given to simplify the line of flow to allow visitors to appreciate and deepen their understanding of said works without getting lost during peak times and while having an overall sense of their surroundings.

Moreover, the ends of walls dividing the works are painted with colors that function as a chromatic index which facilitates the identification of each division. In addition, by numbering the works and displaying the numbers on the walls, visitors can check them against the guide book handed to them at the entrance to obtain descriptive information.

By focusing on the organization of the venue, such as the line of flow, exhibition space and graphics, we endeavored to build an event space that would join a variety of works to become the framework for this exhibition.
