Nikken Sekkei design – Hoki Museum
This is a private museum to exhibit and preserve painting and wines that Mr. Hoki has collected. The essence of collection is not only just to gather things, but also to reconstruct them, exhibit them and establish new meanings. So, the action Mr. Hoki is performing here through gathering realistic paintings and aiming to establish new meanings can be exactly recognized as “collection”.
