4th - 16th March 2017, National Museum of Cambodia, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
"New Khmer Architecture, the Cambodian architectural modern movement in the 1950-60s, is gathering international attention in the past few years. Recent researches revealed that many Japanese experts took part in this movement; from design phase to construction, and from research projects to urban planning.
The exhibition "New Khmer and Japan" unveils Cambodian-Japanese architectural collaboration in 1950-60s, based on the original drawings and documents discovered in Japan, including the representative works of Cambodian modernist Vann Molyvann. The exhibition shows the diversity of collaborations, from timber agricultural centre in the rural area to the bridge over the Mekong River in Phnom Penh.
Organized by Environmental Global Hub, Kyushu University, co-organized by Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts of Cambodia, National Museum of Cambodia and The Japan Foundation, with the assistance of Royal University of Cambodia, Phnom Penh."
