Fujimori Akinobu Designs to “Mosaic Tile Museum”


Here is such a museum in Tajimi-shi, Aichi prefecture, where you want to take pictures in person and show them to people.
It is a Tajimi mosaic tile museum. Design of this building is Akinobu Fujimori who is both a architectural historian and an architect.

Anyway the first impact is a strong appearance. It is a building where you want to be flat from the front. I got the impression that the child played sand and solidified it with water and dried it. Mr. Fujimori seems to be “a garage that digs out tile raw materials as a motif”. The green grass growing on the building is also an accent.

The ceiling is free when entering inside! There is no roof. What will happen if it rains? But here is a mosaic tile museum. Because it is a tile, it is okay to get wet with water.

Rooftop floor is an exhibition of mosaic tiles. A tile design made in the early Showa era of Japan was affixed.

What surprised me is the reproduction of paintings. Tiger, snake, horse. The tile craftsman expresses the landscape of Japan with tiles!
It looks like a pixel drawing. The Japanese were coloring the bathroom and the kitchen with tiles.

The third floor is an exhibition of the tile manufacturing process and the reasons that tiles are popular in Kasahara Town.The second floor is a sample exhibition hall of tile art. A staff familiar with the tile will ride the consultation.The first floor is a museum shop and experience space.

I have liked drawing since I was young, manga and design. I tried to find a way to be involved in art other than painting, and found that there were ways to be involved in planning, management and criticism. I am interested in modern art and try to interact with contemporary artists. I am an art otaku, however, it is not limited to modern art. I appreciate widely and shallowly in classical literature, remains, and architecture. If there is an exhibition or an artist that interests me, I go anywhere in and outside of Japan.
