Appreciation towards Schemata Architects for providing the following description:

根据建筑师柳谷孝彦(Takahiko Yanagisawa)最初的设想,当代艺术馆的建筑应当能与相邻的木场公园(Kiba Park)产生有机的联系,但实际上,游客的所有活动都仅仅局限于场馆内。因此,Schemata Architects事务所的设计师团队试图通过新的设计将人流从木场公园由建筑后方引入,并依据项目竞赛的设计要求设计出独立于建筑物的标识,家具及固定装置以激活场馆空间。

The existing building conceived by architect Takahiko Yanagisawa was originally designed with the aim of creating conscious connection to the adjacent Kiba Park, but actually all activities were confined within the museum. Our idea was to generate a flow of people from Kiba Park through to the back of the building and recreate the building based on the original idea by “designing signs, various pieces of furniture and fixtures without touching the existing building at all” as stated in the design requirements of the competition.

We designed display furniture larger than standard furniture that is too heavy to manually carry for a person but can be easily carried by a person using a lifting machine and created “interfaces” made of display furniture pieces so that a museum staff member can freely adjust them using a lifting machine while preventing visitors from moving them manually. In this way, objects displayed on passages can be moved easily and spaces can be changed flexibly according to various purposes.

In terms of materials, we selected materials with soft and warm textures in contrast with the solid and dignified appearance of the building.
