Yoshiro and Yoshio Taniguchi Museum of Architecture, Kanazawa

A hub of architectural culture

Yoshiro Taniguchi (1904-1979) was born in Kanazawa, and is a prominent Japanese architect who built over 70 buildings and 40 memorials. He is the father of Yoshio Taniguchi (1937-), who redesigned the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York in 2004. The Yoshiro and Yoshio Taniguchi Museum of Architecture, Kanazawa was built to commemorate Yoshiro and Yoshio Taniguchi. The building is a sophisticated piece of architecture that evokes the

work of Yoshiro Taniguchi. Among its displays is a replica of Yoshiro Taniguchi’s famous work, “Yushintei”, the Japanese-style annex of the State Guest House Sento Palace. Visitors can see architectural works of both Taniguchi architects, as well as learn about Kanazawa’s multi-layered architectural culture.
