As opposed to the widely used digital technology in arts nowadays,animation directors of Studio Ghibli Isao Takahata and Hayao Miyazaki insisted on producing their animation films basically by the traditional method of hand-drawn animation,which makes them won awards in various international film festivals and become a beloved part of popular culture.

The former exhibition comprises over 1300 items of layout design selected from works by Takahata and Miyazaki throughout their careers.The whole history of Studio Ghibli layout production was on display,ranging from Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind to the latest released The Wind Rises and The Tale of The Princess Kaguya.Layouts from the early works and TV series produced before the founding of the company such as Heidi a girl of the Alps are also featured for a comprehensive view of their achievement.
