1985 – Setagaya Art Museum – Shozo Uchii

This two-story museum park is spread out to integrate the building with the landscape and to reduce its apparent volume. The design is obviously strongly influenced by the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. Long, low copper roofs emphasize the horizontal. A sunken garden and pergolas with diszinctive triangular supports mediate between the interior and exterior spaces. Stoneware tiles embedded in precast concrete panels give the building an earthy look.
