It seemed that nature and the circumstances was playing so important role in Ando Tadao’s Architecture especially in the case of San Museum.
It was not easy to depict the whole appearance of this museum in one eye, so it seemed important the role of it’s circumstances to find out the outlines
Only we can estimate whole appearance of this building through the partial understanding of this building.
But it is uncertain for me whether the effect of the surroundings is the key to understand his intention or not.
But the surroundings was very impressive for me to understand the whole appearance of this building.
What made me impressive were the fog and trees.
The fog was very special for understanding the meaning of Mountain. The name of this museum is San, or mountain.
I don’t know why they named this museum San, even though this museum is displaying the subjects relating to the paper.
The paper museum seemed more proper name than San, mountain.
I think there must be some reason of naming in such way.
The architect must try to make the proper result, according to the ideas of the architecture.
In this point, the surroundings of the museum seemed to play important role to constitute the meaning of Mountain.
What represents the meaning of mountain ?
In my opinion, it was natural objects such as trees, water, fog and so on ?
I posted about the invisibility brought by the fog and the water in previous posting.
You can’t not see the whole appearance of mountain at any place except air.
I couldn’t identify whole appearance of the museum.
The water around the building was the mediator between the building and the mountain.
Trees around the museum help me to understand the whole concept of the creator.
The fog in rainy day was very special to show the meaning of the museum than in sunny day.
The fog hide some so many surroundings of the museum and made the museum mysterious.
The fog also made the trees mysterious.
Through this way, the museum became a very mysterious place.
So, it was inevitable to visit the museum in a rainy day.
Mystery seemed the very essence in the meaning of the San Museum in the view point of the Architecture.
