poster for Koishikawa Annex, The University Museum, The University of Tokyo

The Koishikawa Annex of the University Museum at the University of Tokyo is a museum facility that makes use of the architecture of the main building of the former Tokyo Medical School, which is a designated Important Cultural Property. Since its opening in 2001, the museum has used the academic specimens that had accumulated in the university to hold various events including permanent exhibits, special exhibits, and experimental exhibits. In December 2013, it was reborn as an architectural museum. The museum building is the oldest extant school building at the University of Tokyo, and the structure itself is a valuable example of pseudo Western-style architecture from the early Meiji Period.
The actual exhibits are divided into six themes: architectural models, the historical buildings of the University of Tokyo, the diversity of natural forms, spatial specimens, world architecture, and body space. We hope that for those who seek architecture of all the universe, this museum will evoke the creation of new ideas and forms.
