Makino Botanical Museum

Inspired by plant and animal forms the Makino Botanical Museum is punched overlooking the city on the back side of Mount Godai. Designed by Naito Architect & Associates the structure features a melodic flow with easy transitions from inside and out. The roof has to be one of my favorite parts with the beams connected in the fashion of an extremely long and intricate spinal column. The resulting form is a unique undulating outcropping of roof which creates a visual stunning result both on the interior and exterior spaces.
