The main building
Toride Annex was built as the Annex of the former Art Museum of Ueno on the gently sloping hill at the entrance of the Toride Campus. It consists of a multipurpose hall and administration office on the first floor and storage and a photo studio on the second and third floor. It was built mainly to resolve the shortage of storage space on the Ueno Campus. The concept of a "Wall Museum" was proposed to explore the characteristics of the Tokyo University of the Arts (the former name: Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music), and so art works were placed around the museum building as a space for the creative activities of the teachers (professors), forming a kind of an environmental museum.
