Suzuki Kiitsu (1796-1858) is regarded as the most talented of the students trained by Sakai Hoitsu (1761-1828), who revived the Rimpa style in Edo.

The Exhibition Planning Team of civil engineering experts and participating designers as well as artists encourage the visitors to get to know civil engineering in greater depth. The Exhibition shows the history of civil engineering from the high economic growth period to today, as it expresses its dynamic force with sound and images.
