Exhibition design: the cultural history of the development of Japanese cities presented on the example of Nagoya. Founded 400 years ago as a feudal royal capital of fortresses, the forth largest city of Japan today is located within a densely populated industrial region of approx. 8 million inhabitants, and has become home of affiliated groups such as Toyota. The exhibition has brought a large number of exclusive exhibits from the museum of Nagoya to Vienna. As an architectural structure BWM architects integrated graphic design into the exhibition display.
