There is site in the center of education zone where gathering green of cultural facilities is rich in soon of the Yatsushiro ruins of a castle.
Trees in site are left as much as possible, and silhouette of metallic building appears and disappears from during green of trees from front street.
Name of "future forest museum" is thing which we were able to decide by open call for participants, but seems to let you image this metallic building and harmony with environment where green is rich in.

Building summary

By this plan, big attention was paid that we reduced a feeling of coercion of building in consideration of environment that was human whom visual height was held down to. Closing practices is high on the first-floor part, and two big exhibition rooms of the volume are arranged, and it is filled by laying earth on the ground as if it is basement. Small hill covered with lawn on flat site seems to have risen. Open space such as entrance hall or cafe spreads out under the roof floating lightly on the hill. The storage of store given metallic coating is floated on the roof and, as future Shoso-in, takes symbolic role of museum.
