To commemorate its 10th anniversary, the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, invited Frederic Migaryou, the deputy director of Paris’ Pompidou Centre, to present this exhibition charting the evolution of Japanese architecture from 1945 to 2010.

Migaryou divided the exhibition into six color-coded sections — black, dark gray, light gray, color, “non-color” and white — each corresponding to different architectural concepts. More than 150 projects by 75 Japanese architects have been brought from the Pompidou Centre to join nearly 300 works prepared exclusively for this exhibition; Nov. 1-March 15.

21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa; 1-2-1 Hirosaka, Kanazawa, Ishikawa. Kanazawa Stn. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. (Fri., Sat. till 8 p.m.). ¥1,000. Closed Mon. 076-220-2800; www.kanazawa21.jp
