Toyo Ito has donated Under the Cherry Trees, an original, one-of-a-kind pencil drawing, which the renowned architect created this year.

 

Born in Seoul, Toyo Ito is an internationally renowned Japanese architect known for conceptual architecture, in which he seeks to simultaneously express the physical and virtual worlds. After working for Kiyonori Kikutake Architect and Associates from 1965 to 1969, in 1971 he started his own studio in Tokyo named Urbot (Urban Robot). In 1979, the studio name was changed to Toyo Ito & Associates.

 

Ito's work has been exhibited widely. In 1991, Ito used 130 video projectors to simulate the urban environment of Tokyo for the Visions of Japan exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Later, in 2000, his Vision and Reality at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art also became a traveling exhibition. Ito similarly exploited the effect of video projection as a medium with which to exhibit architecture in his Blurring Architecture exhibition, initiated at the Suermondt-Ludwig-Museum in Aachen and traveling to four other cities (Tokyo, Antwerp, Auckland, and Wellington) between 1999 and 2001. Ito designed the Berlin-Tokyo/Tokyo-Berlin Exhibition (2006) at the Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin. The design featured a smooth, undulating landscape that occupied almost the entirety of the museum's main exhibition space. This exhibition, in collaboration with the Mori Art Museum, was one of the largest undertakings in the museum's history. A major retrospective of Ito's work was shown at the Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery in 2006 as Toyo Ito: The New Real in Architecture. In 2013, Ito was awarded the Pritzker Prize, one of architecture's most prestigious prizes.
