Abstract

This is a progress report on the plan to conserve and repair the Musashi-Ranzan Country Club clubhouse designed by architect Taro Amano. It is a valuable example of the conservation and repair of private company-owned modern reinforced concrete architecture without the use of subsidies. Project planning commenced in 2009, and minor construction has been carried out each year, with the third installment of work carried out in 2014. For carrying out the construction, the design content and course of construction are based on the results of an analysis and survey of the original building. The clubhouse, together with the conservation and repair work currently being carried out, was selected as one of the works in the docomomo Japan 174 in 2014.
