Miyako Ecology Center, Kyoto
The purpose of the Miyako Ecology Center in Japan is to inform the population about topics relating to environmental protection. As a result of this programme, the
building itself is constructed in line with environmental considerations. Terracotta was used as a natural building component. The east and west sides support a roof-shaped structure made of grey ceramic, thus harmonising with the cityscape of old Kyoto and the nearby Kyoto Municipal Science Center For Youth.
