Anime Architecture traces the architectural world-building process of Japan’s most influential animated science fiction films. In order to highlight the artists, designers, and directors of the meticulous backdrops that bring to life the futuristic urban environments of anime, curator Stefan Riekeles of Berlin spent years compiling these works. The Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens is the only U.S. venue hosting this special exhibition. From location photographs and concept sketches as detailed pencil drawings through to final expressions as cells in full color, Anime Architecture reveals some of the intricacies of the creative processes behind Japan’s ultramodern animated films.

Don’t miss your chance to see these unique and highly detailed drawings from some of the best-loved Japanese anime.
