Shiranuhi Culture Plaza


Shiranuhi is a small town in rural Kumamoto. Shiranuhi Culture Plaza is a modrn building housing the library and a small museum.

It is one of the projects of the Kumamoto Artpolis and it opened in 1999. The architect was Atsushi Kitagawara.

The building itself is a simple, single-storey, rectangular block, however, it is encased in a framework that is much larger and covered in horizontal slats. The effect is to make the building more monumental in appearance and at the same time somewhat dazzling.

I likd it. To see other posts on Kumamoto Artpolis projects click on the label at the bottom of the post.
