I went to see "Midousuji Window" sculpture, installation show at downtown Osaka. They show many contemporary installation at the business building by the window on Midousuji street. That is why they called it, "Midousuji Window". It is also the district that has old, Classical, Greek, and Mayan style buildings from Taisyo era to early Syowa era.(1912-1930) I like to walk around the place and see old modern Western buildings.


「御堂筋ウィンドー」という大阪市主催のアートのイベントをやっていたので2/17日に廻りました。平日でもうほとんど終わりかけでもちろんほとんど見ている人もいなく、雨も降っていました。御堂筋沿いのオフィスビルやホテル等のウィンドーの中に現代アートを展示してあったのを見て回りました。確かにおもしろい作品が多かったので、もっと多くの人が見てくれたらな、と思いました。本当に自社ビルとかあって、見ていると、ビジネスマンの邪魔になるような事も若干あって、彼らはあまり興味がないようでした。


もっとたくさんこのような行事があればアートも盛り上がると思いました。


周辺の古い建物の写真も撮りました。

Yodoko Guest House

There are fourteen building designs, which Frank Lloyd Wright has done in Japan. Six building were built, but two of them were destroyed by the 1923 Magnitude 7.9 Great Kanto earthquake (around Tokyo.)

Frank Lloyd Wright traveled outside of America for the first time, and went to Japan with his wife. There were 37 years old in the year, and he spent two months touring natural and historical landmarks from Nikko (North East of Tokyo) all the way down to (Shikoku island) Takamatsu.

He made a contract to build the new Imperial Hotel in Tokyo in late 1911. After a year of project delays and several trans-Pacific crossings, Wright finally took up part-time residence in Tokyo in January 1917. (Wrightian Architectural Archives Japan)

In 1918, Wright made a design plan for a second house for Tazaemon Yamamura who was the eighth-generation brewer of the famous sake “Sakuramasamurne,” in Nada (near Kobe.) It took a while …
