History and Culture Museum, Taketa

Kengo Kuma 

At the foot of the ancestral castle of Oka, a small information center tells the history of the enclave beneath an expressive play of roofs clad in a lattice of smoked bamboo.

A bamboo gallery marks the garden’s boundary, leading to an elevator that travels the steep ascent to connect the museum to what was home to Tanomura Chikuden, painter of wistful Edo period sceneries.
