角川武蔵野ミュージアム竣工記念展 隈研吾/大地とつながるアート空間の誕生 − 石と木の超建築

角川武蔵野ミュージアム竣工記念展 隈研吾/大地とつながるアート空間の誕生 − 石と木の超建築

武蔵野、所沢の地に異形の巨大な建築物が誕生しました。
図書、美術、博物の複合施設として現代における新たなミュージアム像を提案する "角川武蔵野ミュージアム" です。その設計者であり、世界で最も高い評価を受ける建築家の一人である隈研吾の展覧会を、当ミュージアムの竣工記念として開催いたします。世界中にある隈建築の中で、いま最も注目されているのは国立競技場と角川武蔵野ミュージアムだと言えるでしょう。国を代表するスポーツの聖地を、隈はその象徴的素材として木を多用することで、周囲と調和したものにしました。一方の角川武蔵野ミュージアムは、花崗岩の板材2万枚を外壁にまとった、大地が隆起したような建築です。
芸術/アートの語源である古代ギリシャの言葉 "テクネー" は、自然にはないものを生み出す 〈術〉を意味しました。今回隈研吾が手がけた角川武蔵野ミュージアムは、石とその面構成による唯一無二の造形性、武蔵野台地とこのミュージアムは地底でつながっているという思想、そしてそれらを具現化する高度な技術などが統合された隈研吾の  "アート=術"  だと言うことができます。本展では、人間にとって最も身近かつ最も対照的な自然素材〈石〉と〈木〉を用いた、これら二つの挑戦的建築を軸に、隈建築の魅力を紹介いたします。

Commemorating the Completion of the Kadokawa Culture Museum
Kengo Kuma: The Birth of an Art Space Connected to Nature −
Transcendent Architecture in Stone and Wood

An architecture of extraordinary form has been born within the area of Musashino and Tokorozawa. It is the Kadokawa Culture Museum which presents a new image of the museum of our time as a place where the library, art museum and natural history museum are integrated within a single multifunctional complex. In this exhibition to commemorate the completion of the museum, we are proud to present Kengo Kuma, the designer of the museum and one of the most highly renowned architects in the world.
Of the buildings that he has designed throughout the world, the ones attracting the greatest attention at this moment may be the National Stadium and the Kadokawa Culture Museum. In the case of the National Stadium, Japan's holy ground for the playing of sports, Kuma's abundant use of wood as a symbolic material has produced a structure that harmonizes with its surroundings. The Kadokawa Culture Museum, on the other hand, with its exterior walls clad with 20,000 granite plates, is an architecture that seems to have risen up from the Earth itself.
The word “art” has as its root the ancient Greek word "techne," which signifies the creation of something not found in nature, an idea expressed by the Japanese word "jutsu” or “technique.” Stone and the unique plasticity provided by its surface structure, the idea of connection with the Musashino Upland from deep within the Earth and the sophisticated techniques used to give form to both were brought together by Kengo Kuma in the Kadokawa Culture Museum. In doing so, one may say for Kuma, “art” and "jutsu" are one and the same.
This exhibition introduces the beauty of Kuma's architecture by focusing on these two groundbreaking structures built with stone and wood, two of the most familiar and most contrasting materials known to humans.

Kengo Kuma
Kengo Kuma was born in 1954. Before establishing Kengo Kuma & Associates in 1990, he received his master’s degree in architecture from the University of Tokyo where he was a professor of architecture from 2009 to March 2020 and Special Professor from April 2020. Having been inspired by Kenzo Tange’s Yoyogi National Gymnasium, built for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, Kengo Kuma decided to pursue architecture at a young age and later entered the architecture program at the University of Tokyo where he studied under Hiroshi Hara and Yoshichika Uchida. During his graduate studies, he made a research trip across the Sahara, exploring various villages and settlements in which he observed a unique power and beauty. After spending time as a visiting scholar at Columbia University in New York, he established his own design ffice in Tokyo. Since then, Kengo Kuma & Associates has designed architectural works in over 20 countries and received prestigious awards, including the Architectural Institute of Japan Award, the Spirit of Nature Wood Architecture Award (Finland) and the International Stone Architecture Award (Italy), among others. Kengo Kuma & Associates aims to design architecture which naturally merges with its cultural and environmental surroundings, proposing gentle, human-scaled buildings. The office is constantly in search of new materials to replace concrete and steel, and seeks a new approach for architecture in a post-industrial society.

東京 TOKYO / Kengo Kuma / Published by KADOKAWA / 2020
The architect Kengo Kuma has played a part in the birth of many of the landmarks buildings that emblazon the Tokyo landscape in 2020, including the National Stadium, Takanawa Gateway Station and the Kabukiza Theater. For Kuma, who created many of his most representative works in the outlying suburbs of Tokyo, the first 20 years of the 21st century has been a time marked by his “return to the city." So then what kind of city is Tokyo today for you and me? What kind of city is Tokyo to an architect whose ideal has been to create architecture that opens up to the city? An architect whose dialog with the city has continued to this day? This book "東京TOKYO" is a collection of Kengo Kuma's writings about Tokyo, as well as photographs of Kuma's newest works selected by the architect himself and taken by the photographer Kenshu Shintsubo. Together they invite the reader to consider anew the relationship between the city and people.
