CHICHU ART MUSEUM
Chichu Art Museum was constructed in 2004 in Kagawa, Japan, to rethink the relationship between nature and people. The museum was built mostly underground to avoid affecting the beautiful natural scenery of the Seto Inland sea. Despite being primarily underground, the museum lets in an abundance of natural light that changes the artwork's appearance and the ambiance of the space itself over time, throughout the day, and all along the four seasons of the year. Taking form as the artists and architects bounced ideas off each other, the museum in its entirety can be seen as an extensive site-specific artwork. Visitors can experience changes in both scales, quality, and quantity of light flowing in when moving through space, so the mark represents the scale sift of natural light that brightens up the space. The flexible letter C creates the identity system.
