1969 – National Museum of Modern Art – Yoshiro Taniguchi


The Museum, just a few steps from the Palace Side Building, faces the moat and stone rampart of the Imperial Palace compound across the road. This close proximity promoted Yoshiro Taniguchi to make the design as simple as possible. The horizontal volume is elevated above a raised platform with only a few windows. Inside, however, the spaces are richly articulated follwing a skip-floor system.
