This exhibition of a selection of projects by Toru Mitani (Curator, Critic in Landscape Architecture) and his practice, Studio on Site, is about how small things have a significant, perceptual impact on diffuse landscapes. Over the past two decades, Mitani’s work has explored how perception is altered through minute dimensional changes in the prosaic components of everyday landscapes. Incremental variations in the heights and widths of curbs, in the rim of a drain, or the trimming of foliage, when repeated across space, induce shifts in perception intended to make the landscape intensely vibrant and present. Projects by Mitani on display include his Okutama Forest Therapy, Shimane Museum of Ancient Izumo, and Machida City Hall projects, among 14 total projects in the exhibition.
