TAKAO 599 MUSEUM -Nature Wall-

TAKAO 599 MUSEUM|2015
About the Project
Mt. Takao is located in Hachioji-shi of Tokyo. At the base of this 599m-high mountain, Takao 599 Muse- um, opened on August 11, 2015. This museum was established in order to allow people a fresh out- look on this rich, world-renowned ecosystem. WOW was responsible for the planning, production and directing work of A Tree Of Takao, that is projected on the Nature Wall, that welcomes guests as they enter the building, as well as the 599 Guide, which is an infographic that allows guests to get to know Mt.Takao better.

About the Work
On the 3.5 x 16m wall that aligns the museum inte- rior is a Japanese beech relief that symbolizes that rich nature of Mt.Takao, as well the Nature Wall exhibition, that features stuffed versions of the ani- mals that inhabit the mountain and its surrounding area. You will only find at this museum, depictions of nature from a scientific viewpoint, as well the seasonal diversity and lively motions of plants and animals, through dynamic and humorous anima- tions of them. Here, you can experience the natural ecology that is reared on the mountain.
