Yanmar Co., Ltd.
The YANMAR Museum located in Nagahama, Japan was recently awarded the Building Contractors Society (BCS) Award for fiscal year 2014. Overseen by the Japan Federation of Construction Contractors, an organization currently in its 55th year of operation, the award is considered one of the preeminent awards in Japan’s architecture industry.
YANMAR Museum, which was designed to impart a lasting and unique experience to visitors through a variety of exhibits and workshops, has welcomed over 140,000 visitors since its grand opening in March 2013. Focusing on the YANMAR Group’s three business domains of the land, the sea and the city, the museum showcases YANMAR’s enterprise working in harmony with nature in the fields of food production and harnessing power.
YANMAR is honored to be recognized not only for the excellent design and functionality of the museum’s exterior, which exhibits its three domains of “city,” “land” and “sea,” but also for the museum’s efforts to exist harmoniously with the surrounding environment and community. A collection of BCS Award winners will feature the YANMAR Museum as a representative work of architecture in Japan to the world, and it will be printed and distributed throughout Japan and to the country’s foreign embassies.
