CASE-REAL reveals an exhibition space design for photographer nao tsuda’s solo exhibition ‘tranquility at the shore’. the show was held at the historically conserved bunsho-kan of dazaifu-tenmangu, japan, a large tatami room open to the garden in front of its wooden structure.

due to limited wall space, CASE-REAL was challenged to secure enough surface for exhibiting the works. by implementing modules extracted from traditional japanese architectural aspects, such as the tatami and fusuma panels, the architects created volumes that can be moved and used for the exhibition without damaging this historical building.

in addition, by creating various shapes of this volume, the viewers are able to see the works from different perspectives, such as sitting down or looking down from above — a free perspective which is similar to the photographer’s vision during his shooting.

‘we aimed to create an extraordinary gallery experience through this atmosphere where the raindrops, the scent from the garden, natural lights blend with the photographic works of nao tsuda,’ comments CASE-REAL team.
