398. Memorial Hall of Peace, Hiroshima



Dear Koji,

"When I was engaged in the design of the Hiroshima
peace facilities, I had an ambition of coordinating the
two scales, human scale and social human scale, in one
building. I started with the Peace Memorial Museum.
Its main structure was built in social human scale, while
stairs with a landing and birdcage-like louvers were in
human scale. These two scales were meant to interact
with each other." (Kenzo Tange)

Best regards.
