Fukuoka City Red Brick Culture Center福岡市赤煉瓦文化館

Historical Monument

Designed by representative Meiji architects Tatsuno Kingo and Kataoka Yasushi, this was constructed to be the Kyushu branch office of Nippon Life Insurance. The building with its roof featuring a dome, small tower and roof windows, and its characteristic red brick and white granite outer walls is an example of design that borrows from late 19th-century British style. It was designated a National Important Cultural Property in 1969 and ownership was transferred to Fukuoka City. It was used as a historical archive until 1990, then renovated and reopened in 1994 as the Red Brick Culture Center. The Fukuoka City Museum of Literature was established on the first floor as a general library, and gathers and provides a variety of information concerning literature.

當你在中洲川端附近閑逛時,在那珂川畔,很容易就可以看到一棟紅磚外牆的歐式建築,這就是福岡市赤煉瓦文化館。紅磚飾以白色花崗岩的外牆,尖塔,圓頂,充滿19世紀末英國建築風格。文化館被列為重要文化財,由明治時期日本著名的建築師辰野金吾和片岡安設計,明治42年(1909年)建成,而辰野金吾也是著名的東京車站的設計者。館內非常安靜,可以慢慢欣賞。內部裝飾、家具都值得一看,還有位於2號展覽室的棟札

赤いレンガの建物です。その空間だけ明治にタイムスリップしたような、そんな雰囲気です。東京駅を設計した方と同じ方の作品のようで、建物の美しさがありました。
Reviewed:2018/08/25 明治の雰囲気が伝わる空間
モダーンな高層ビルが増えた市内で、ここだけ明治の雰囲気が伝わる空間。
もともとは、日本生命九州支店ビルだった。
市歴史資料館として使われた後、市民に開かれた施設「赤煉瓦文化館」としてオープン。
1階の一部が「福岡市文学館」となっている。

          The most northerly of Kyushu island’s prefectures, Fukuoka comprises castle towns, seaside parks, and Hakata ramen, one of Japan’s most famous noodle dishes. Whether due to its good location or its unique charm, the prefecture’s capital, Fukuoka city, has been voted one of the most desirable places to live in the country—a close-knit community, a thriving food scene, and accessible nature combine for irresistibly laid-back city vibes.
