この中之島公会堂も横の図書館と並んで レトロ建築？近代建築としてはすごく 見栄えがある。
I went to the “inside tour” of “Osaka City Central Public Hall”.
“Nakanoshima Public Hall” in Nakanoshima Park in Kitahama
“Nakanoshima Public Hall” in Kitahama, Osaka. The place where Nakanoshima Public Hall is located is Nakanoshima, as the name Kitahama suggests. On days when the weather is nice, this park is quite a place and is crowded with many people. It feels like there’s a big park in the middle of a city building, and since it’s located in Kitahama, it’s pretty much like all the buildings of famous companies, and it’s a nice view.
This Nakanoshima public hall is also a retro architecture along with the library next to it? It looks great as a modern building. In particular, this “Nakanoshima Public Hall” is so vivid in color that it can’t help but stand out. This Western-style building has quite an attraction. In the late Meiji era, a market speculator called “Einosuke Iwamoto” donated 1 million yen from his parents’ inheritance and personal property. After that, he failed in the market and committed suicide. Such property rights. Einosuke Iwamoto, who was a fan of the market at the time, participated in a business group headed by Eiichi Shibusawa and traveled to the United States. It seems that this construction site will be the site of the former Hamada clan’s storehouse.
Shinichiro Okada’s proposal won first place
For the design of this public hall, Shinichiro Okada’s proposal won first place in an architectural design discussion with a prize, and Kingo Tatsuno and Yasushi Kataoka worked on the implementation design, and it opened in November 1918. However, it seems that Einosuke Iwamoto, who conceived the building, failed in the market and committed suicide in 1916, so he never saw the building completed. The building is a steel-framed brick structure with 3 floors above ground and 1 floor below ground, and has a neo-renaissance baroque grandeur. In addition, the ceiling and murals of the special room, which depicts the beginning of the world by Hisashi Matsuoka, are a feature, and performances by the Russian Opera, Albert Einstein, lectures by historical figures such as Helen Keller and Gagarin are also held. there is
The special room is the main room for the internal tour.
The tour of the interior of this time was about the history of how this public hall was built, the room where the materials are open to the public, and an introduction to this building by entering the “special room”. Perhaps it’s a staff member, but the woman kindly and politely explained. Especially the paintings on the ceiling, the splendid arched windows, the decorations on them, the paintings on the walls, the stained glass and the pillars, all look really nice. The point is that when you go to Western-style castles and historical buildings overseas, especially in Europe, France, England, etc., the shapes of the buildings are very similar to those introduced overseas, especially the paintings on the ceiling. That’s exactly what it is, and the people on the walls look like the paintings on the walls of overseas societies. However, this room is gorgeous. I feel like I’m spending some money. She looks great from the outside in this public hall, but this special room is a must-see. amazing···.
