“Yoshio Taniguchi is world renown for his beautiful museums. His attention to detail extends beyond the obvious and the tangible to the subconscious idea of beautify and balance that we all recognise but cannot define.
His prescriptive yet considerate approach makes sure that his buildings deliver the most appropriate response to both surroundings and exhibits from day one. The Marugame museum is both a public space and a building.
The elevated platform on its foreground with Genichiro Inokuma’s mural as a backdrop works as a covered square where children play. The roof terrace allows adults to enjoy a quiet moment and the building with its subtle detailing and considered lighting embraces quietly each exhibition.” (Extracted from the Mimoa Project Page I created: here)
