Heisei Chishinkan Wing is designed by internationally acclaimed architect Taniguchi Yoshio—known for his design of the Gallery of Hōryū-ji Treasures at the Tokyo National Museum and his redesign of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
The Heisei Chishinkan's architecture has a linear theme inspired by the spatial configurations of traditional Japanese architecture.
Among the many appealing features of the new facility are the spacious front lobby, which envelops visitors in soft natural light; earthquake mitigation systems protecting the entire building as well as individual artworks; an auditorium incorporating the latest projection technology; and a restaurant overlooking the museum's west garden.
