We supervised the production of “Designing a Design Museum,” a program which aired as part of the activities of the “Let’s Build a Museum in Japan!” initiative, for which Masashi Kawamura serves as an advisor.
Under the spirit of Issey Miyake and Masanori Aoyagi’s 2012 proposal, a variety of activities have been restarted in order to realize Japan’s first design museum.
With Masashi Kawamura as an advisor, a symposium and public meetings will be held starting in 2019 where everyone will come up with ideas and think about what kind of museum they want to create and what it will look like in concrete terms.
“Designing a Design Museum” considers a question a variety of creative professionals have thought about up until now, “What kind of design museum would you like to build in Japan?” from the perspective of the forefront of the design world. On the show, leading creators discussed the question “What is ‘design’ ?” and the ideal format for a Japanese design museum.
