For the third instalment of its Natural History Series, the JP Tower Museum INTERMEDIATHEQUE is holding a special exhibition presenting the scientific equipment coming from the former Fourth Higher School (current Kanazawa University).
Main Features of the Exhibition
The scientific equipment coming from the former Fourth Higher School (current Kanazawa University) and conserved both by the Kanazawa University Museum and the Ishikawa Prefectural Museum of Natural History constitutes one of Japan’s largest collection. From this collection, we have thoroughly selected fifty items that stand out from a formal point of view, in order to reexamine with the present exhibition their value as design objects.
