The Hirosaki Museum of Contemporary Art is the first museum in Japan designed by Paris-based and internationally active architect Tsuyoshi Tane. This book reveals the full story of how Tane's work on "architecture that inherits memory" transformed a century-old brick warehouse into a contemporary art museum. Starting with the architectural concept, which derives from the history of Hirosaki, this book traces the evolution of brick warehouses, details the archaeological research, the spectacular on-site demolition, and careful restoration of the existing building, before finally showcasing the museum situated in the local Hirosaki landscape upon completion.
