[About the Hayashibara Museum of Art building] This is the first art museum building for Kunio Maekawa, who previously worked on the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and the Kumamoto Prefectural Museum of Art. Overcooked bricks are used for the exterior walls of the exhibition building. Although they are irregular in shape and color, they have a texture and harmonize with the greenery of the surrounding trees.
