Outline

People have developed tools and techniques to obtain the blessings of nature. We can't imagine what kind of land we see in the present, in what way, and by what kind of technology. The folk museum is a place which shows the one in the background of the thing, and there is man and the technique. And, Architecture is the same. In order to be able to feel the relationship between the tools and techniques that craftsmen have nurtured, we consider architecture itself an exhibition. The concept of Toyonagago Museum of Folklore is "people, nature, tools and techniques."

Producer
