Archi-depot only opened in June 2016 and is the only Japanese museum specialising in archiving and displaying architectural models. The specially designed warehouse space has models of Tokyo’s famous landmarks and a high-tech information system using QR codes. You simply scan the code nearby and are shown further works by the designer, sketches and photographs. As contemporary Japanese architecture is world-renowned, it is a great chance to see some of the innovative design and technique in use both here and abroad.
