The brainchild of three of Japan’s most respected designers –Issey Miyake, Taku Satoh and Naoto Fukasawa– this masterpiece is built by renowned architect Tadao Ando. Ando’s brief was to design a structure that would represent Japan, and he came up with this low-rise, angular building featuring a cavernous underground space. Despite having 70 per cent of the space underground, the galleries are brightly lit and have been venues for art and design exhibitions hosted by some of the world’s most creative minds.
