Kushiro Art Museum, Hokkaido

The Kushiro Art Museum was built on the Kushiro River.
which flows under the Nusamai Bridge in the downtown area of Kushiro City.

The building itself has two symbolic expressions which represent the characteristic spaciousness and freedom experienced in the Kushiro region.

The roof is one long panorama supported by wide walls of glass facing the river. The brick walls on the street side were built from historical brick preserved from the old warehouses that were once the hub of Kushiro Port.

These contrasting designs symbolize the ambition of the museum: to bridge the past and the future of artistic culture.

The first floor of the building houses the lobby and the main functional facilities, and the second floor houses the public reading area and outside terrace.

The glass walls allow plenty of sunshine in, especially in the autumn and winter, and the terraces facilitate a continuation of space between the inside and outside environments. The design of the building gives one the impression that the museum is open to the community and wishes to harmonize with its environment.
