The exhibition 1920-2020 Prague-Tokio / Exchanges, Parallels, Common Visions presents dozens of models, photographs, and artworks, many of them unique, and several Japanese authors not yet exhibited in the Czech Republic and Czech authors whose works were realized directly in Japan or whose work was significantly influenced by Japanese architecture. The mutual influence of Czech and Japanese architecture is mapped via dozens of models, photographs, and works of art. Items on display include works by Japanese authors who have not yet been exhibited here and Czech authors whose buildings were realized directly in Japan or whose work was significantly influenced by Japanese architecture. Models include the Church of St. Paul in Karuizawa and the Music Center of Gunma Prefecture by Antonín Raymond, an architect of Czech origin who is considered one of the founders of modern architecture in Japan. There is also a replica of the model of the famous Czechoslovak pavilion for Expo 1970 in Osaka by architects Viktor Rudiš, Vladimír Palla, and Aleš Jenček, and the iconic Nakagin Capsule Tower from 1972, and buildings by Sou Fujimoto and the Bow-Wow Studio.
