Museum on Echigo-Tsumari (MonET)
Tokamachi City
Immerse yourself in the charm of Tokamachi at this tourist facility.
Echigo-Tsumari is blessed with the bounties of nature, but the site for this building was the town, and special conditions applied. My aim was a building with attractive spaces and architectural characteristics able to attract visitors in their own right. Further, I believe that the structure must enfold nature, which I chose to represent with a pool. For the surrounding space, I chose a pure geometic shape, the square, more beautiful than any other form. It would function to bring new order to a jumbled and messy townspace.Exposed concrete and lavish use of glass would give a quiet appearance to the building, separating the peaceful interior from the noisy outside. Inside, rooms are nested inside each other, a traditional form in Japanese architecture, found in sacred places such as temples and shrines. The building has been renovated and re-opened as a new museum, the Echigo-Tsumari Satoyama Museum of Contemporary Art, KINARE in July 2012.
The suggested season is summer and autumn.
