A Museum like a Park

21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa

A museum opened in 2004 in a city with a population of approximately 470,000 people. Designed by Kazuyo Sejima+Ryue Nishizawa/SANAA, a new model of a “museum like a park that opens onto the city” was established through collaborative efforts between the architect, curator and the city government. As the building comprises a series of exhibition rooms = boxes that are dispersed within a circular glass-sided structure, entrances are provided in four different areas. For this reason there is no distinction between the front and back of the structure, and its interior gives rise to a migratory feel as if strolling around a town. As a result of maintaining a sense of harmony with its environment, the museum takes on a unique demeanor that changes in tow with the seasons.
