Presented by Australian Design Centre, Revisiting Shoei Yoh is an exhibition by the University of New South Wales and Kyushu University that draws from the archive of Japanese architect and late 20th century pioneer of digital design, Shoei Yoh.
The exhibition traces a trajectory of experimental design practice across five key buildings completed by Yoh in Japan between 1979 to 1994. The exhibition showcases Yoh's work through archival architectural drawings and photographs as well as new 3D scanned animations and digitally fabricated parametric architectural models. It celebrates the launch of the online Shoei Yoh Archive that hosts a repository of newly digitised archival assets in an immersive 3D spatial environment developed from 3D scans of the Naiju Community Centre in Fukuoka, Japan.
Revisiting Shoei Yoh is funded by the Australian Government, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), Australia Japan Foundation Grant (2020-2021) AKF2020045 Revisiting Shoei Yoh: Digital Preservation and Architectural Archiving, supported by project partner micro global agency doq, and presenting partner Australian Design Centre.
