Exhibition Statement of Purpose

Yoshiro Taniguchi got together with people outside of architecture to pursue shared passionate objectives.Three instances are Toson Memorial Hall, Tokuda Shusei Literature Monument, and Museum Meiji-Mura.In an immediate postwar period marked by exhaustion and poverty, the residents of Magome and Kanazawa launched, at virtually the same time, separate projects to honor local cultural heroes and thus invigorate their communities. Commissioned to design and provide on-site instructions, Taniguchi proposed spaces and forms based on profound insights, continued to travel to the sites, and brought the projects to their conclusion.Museum Meiji-Mura differs from the first two instances in that, apprehensive about the thoughtless destruction and disappearance of Meiji-period architecture in a society promoting modernization and in the prevailing architectural currents of Mo
dernism and motivated by a passionate objective, Taniguchi himself began a movement to preserve Meiji-period architecture.
