Where does the building designed by the architect end and the contribution made by the artists begin? In other words, which of the two, the container or the content, is serving the other? In raising these issues, Manuel Tardits invites us to take a closer look at a recent phenomenon – the so called local-community museum – which calls into question a host of assumptions as to what a museum is and what it does. The author is a prize-winning French architect and guest lecturer at the University of Tsukuba in Japan. He is co-founder of Célavi Associates and Mikan architectural agencies and lives and works in Tokyo.
