The Japanese House exhibition at the Barbican (until 25 June) offers a life-size insight into the architecture of the country.

The post-war era produced striking examples of modern contemporary design, including minimalist apartments in overpopulated cities and the compact solutions of the 1980s Bubble era. Visitors to the Barbican art gallery can wander around the full-size recreation of the Moriyama House in Tokyo (designed, in 2005, by Ryue Nishizawa), as well as a Japanese teahouse and garden by Terunobu Fujimori, featuring traditional tea ceremonies. Look out for the film of Mr Moriyama’s hermit lifestyle by Beka and Lemoine, who made the 2014 Barbicania documentary.
