Designed by leading Japanese architect Ando Tadao, this museum itself is an attraction with many points to see.
The museum, designed not only for the display of artworks but for the integration of various types of art, achieves a complex and diverse spatial experience with a plain and simple structure.
Each area of the architecture has its own expression rich in light and shade. The Entrance Hall heightens the senses and invites meditation via its calm atmosphere, while the contrasting glass corridors drenched in natural light surround the exhibition rooms.
The expansive sea in front of the museum and the huge maze-like architecture blend together to produce a variety of changes in light.
A museum that changes dramatically between time and seasons ? it is a joy to wander in the complexity of this changing museum architecture.
