  Open House Roma

The Japanese Cultural Institute takes on the character of the Japanese Heian court architecture (10th century) revisited in a 60s style. The three-storey building, with garden, covers an area of 2900 square meters. The designer Isoya Yoshida uses reinforced concrete instead of the original wood, respecting the classical canons: the protruding pillars, the long eaves, the light / dark color contrast, the grating windows, the entrance staircase. The garden is designed by Ken Nakajima, who is also responsible for the project for the Japanese area at the Botanical Garden of Rome. In the garden, the first made in Italy by a Japanese architect, all the essential elements of the sen'en style garden appear (garden with a pond: small lake, waterfall, rocks, islands, bridge and stone lanterns).
