contributed by Burutapen

Known as Makino Museum of Plants and People, the museum sits on Mount Godai in the outskirts of Kochi City. The Naito architects' intervention sits within the landscape and provides archiving facilities and a platform to share with the public the impressive collection of plants and books by the father of Japanese botany: Dr. Tomitaro Makino. The building program added up to a significant amount of square meters which the architects chose to successfully divide up into two buildings that link through a pergola. The resulting structure comfortably sits in the landscape as considerate to the local environment as the ethos of Dr Tomitaro was. Its carefully crafted construction and considerate design extends to every detail and gained the projects a wide range of awards.
