自由学園明日館

東京近代建築シリーズ #02

ここは、アメリカの巨匠建築家フランク・ロイド・ライトの設計により1921年に建築された、国の重要文化財指定建物です。

空間を連続させて一体構造とする設計は、枠組壁式構法(2×4構法)の先駆けとの見方もあります。木造で漆喰塗の建物は、中央棟を中心に、左右に伸びた東教室棟、西教室棟を厳密なシンメトリーに配しておりシンメトリックさは、奈良の平等院鳳凰堂をイメージしたのだとか。

ライトは建設途中でアメリカに帰国してしまったそうで、正面に向かって右側の教室棟は、そのあとを引き継いだ遠藤新による設計だそうです。よって、設計はライドと遠藤新の共同の作品ということになるようです。そのため左右の教室棟は、細かい部分で違いが見られるとの事。

日本でライトが設計した建物はわずか数件で、現存しそのまま利用されているのは、わずかに二件であり、そのうちの一件がこの明日館なのだそうです。

見学時間 10:00〜16:00(入館は30分前まで) 第3金曜日のみ夜間見学18:00〜21:00あり、月曜休館
見学料\400、喫茶付き\600、ビール付き(夜間のみ)\1,000
