東京都美術館で開かれているクリムト展、その予習を兼ねて月曜日でも開いている国立新美術館に来た。乃木坂駅から直結であるのも嬉しいし、混雑を予想してプロムナードに特設券売所が設けられているのもいい。清楚で明るい建物の中は、作品に集中できるよう配慮がなされ、かなりの作品が展示されている。分離派形成の素地となる多くの作品を見て、さて分離派が立ち上がったところで小休止。外の景色を見てブレイクを入れられるよう... more »I came to the National Museum of Art, which is open on Monday, as well as the Klimt exhibition held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is also nice to be directly connected from Nogizaka Station, and it is also good that there is a special ticket office on the promenade in anticipation of congestion. In the neat and bright building, consideration is made to concentrate on the work, and a considerable amount of work is exhibited. Seeing a lot of works that serve as the basis for the formation of the separatists, we took a short break when the separatists stood up. It goes to the restroom in the rest place where there is a little play so that the break can be put by seeing the scenery outside, and it is a climax finally. This consideration was very grateful.
先々月はトルコ至宝展、今月はウィーンモダン展に行きました。 千代田線乃木坂駅から直結で便利です。 建築物としても素晴らしいし、いつも興味ある美術展を開催しているので、気に入っています。 more »I went to the Turkish Treasure Exhibition last month and the Vienna Modern Exhibition this month. It is conveniently connected to Nogizaka Station on the Chiyoda Line. It's a great building, and I like it because it always has art exhibitions that i'm interested in.
Low sunlight brightens atrium of three stories height. One of the guys who is intrigued by the thoughtful people comes in with a frustrated expression and carefully presses the shutter. The outfit does not reveal the architect (or student), but you can read from the picture of the relationship between buildings and people. The National Art Center is composed of masses of large scale cone and reverse cone and wraps around with a wavy glass facade. Behind the building you can see that Aoyama Park is connected to the natural context. I was wondering if the horizontal pair-glass of the facade had affected Apple's new building.
Great piece of architecture. Nice light all day long. Plenty of space to have peaceful rest and enjoy quite ok coffee.
