In my view, basically “Anything which can be reused shall be kept and reused” in the renovation project. Of course less waste is preferred from an ecological angle, and used materials have a nice charm from aging that new materials do not have. For budget considerations, this project was premised on existing parts being reused as much as possible. So, the main issue was coordination of existing parts and new parts, those were integrated in an interesting mismatch sense. The 2 circular, painted pictures are 1.8 meters, and these define the individuality of the BUNKA-YOKUSEN. These particular paintings are the only of their kind in Japan.
