The Shizuoka Serizawa Museum is a museum constructed with stone, water and wood inside the remains.
Artist Keisuke Serizawa(1895-1984), born in Hon-tori, Aoi-ku, Shizuoka city, created many outstanding dyeing artworks known for its fresh, creative and innovative products. He donated his art works and corrections to Shizuoka city. With this as a start, this museum opened in 1987 introducing Serizawa's art through expositions, corrections and researches.
It was designed by architect Mr. Koichi Shirai(1905-1983). It stands at the corner of Toro remains which is a famous architectural remain of the Yayoi period. The building blends in with the natural surroundings of Toro as it is constructed with selected stone, wood and water, and therefore was counted as one of masterpiece of Mr. Shirai. Piled substantial feeling wall, gentle slope roof top with copper plate, white oak coffered ceiling of exposition room surround the pond. These three items make the space special and relaxing.
