'Kenchiku Soko' (Architeture Depo) is a new museum in Tokyo that is now known as the first museum in Japan for architectural models. While there have been plenty of architectural exhibitions in the city in the past, models are often presented alongside a slew of other project information, including plans, concept diagrams and videos. This dedicated museum gives architectural models the chance to shine on their own.

In order to learn more about a particular model when visiting, the public has the chance to scan QR codes on their smartphones.

Kenchiku Soko is host to models that have been made by some of Japan's leading architectural firms, including Wonderwall, Torafu Architects and Pritzker Prize recipient Shigeru Ban.
