Mid-20th century exhibition of Japanese urban projects opens in Gomel

Visitors invited to take part

Gomel’s Rumyantsev-Paskevich Palace is hosting the Cities on the Edge of Survival: Japanese Urban Projects of the 1960s exhibition, which is currently touring worldwide, having been first presented in Shanghai in 2010. Gomel is the 24th city to host, with residents able to view the works before the exhibition moves to the African continent. To date, the show has visited the USA, Canada, France, Slovakia, Slovenia, Greece, Italy, Macedonia and Croatia.

Japanese architect and designer Naohiko Khino demonstrates works on the theme of cities, including the transforming power of urbanisation, city planning and the search for rational solutions and experimental innovations. The 1960s was a time of great growth for Japanese cities, bringing with it both advantageous progress and problems.

“Each visitor is encouraged to become a direct participant, using Gomel’s interactive map to mark their own home and favourite city locations, as well as those which they’d like to change,” explains Rumyantsev-Paskevich Palace Director Oksana Toropova.
