'...itís the buildings that really shine, as they should, isolated moments of brilliance in a much bigger narrative'
The Times

'Exhibitions on architecture are notoriously hard to pull off but this succeeds triumphantly.' The Spectator

★★★★★ 'This superb show doesnít just tell the fascinating story of Japanese homes since the Second World War - it is an object lesson in how to exhibit architecture.'
Evening Standard

★★★★★ '...this exhibition is ephemeral; make sure you see it before it's torn down this summer.'
Londonist

★★★★★ 'The Japanese House is a brilliant, surprising, tactile exhibition that transforms the Barbicanís unusual gallery space into an organic tangle of bathtubs and ladders and orange trees'
City A.M

★★★★★ 'The Japanese House combines an immersive environment with intelligent commentary in a way that is engaging for a wide audience and guaranteed to raise a smile.'
