Aichi Triennale 2013 Year-Before Event
Workshop “Architectural Gymnastics” Report

“Architectural Gymnastics”, a 2011 Creative Design City Nagoya project, was re-launched as the Aichi Triennale 2013 Year-Before Event, an exciting presentation with participation by both Aichi Prefectural Governor Hideaki Omura and Triennale 2013 Artistic Director Taro Igarashi.

About “Architectural Gymnastics”
Kenchiku Taiso is a form of gymnastics designed to depict architecture. In this workshop, participants, while watching clips of architecture, expressed architectural shapes with their bodies. Translated into physical expression were not only outer forms, but also structure, utility and first impressions. The key is the participant’s passionate devotion to scanning, understanding and loving architecture. Families and other groups were encouraged to express architecture together.
