Teshima Art Museum | Kazuyo Sejima

Teshima Art Museum - Collage

 The Teshima Art Museum designed by Tokyo-based architect Ryue Nishizawa and Japanese artist Rei Naito opened in 2010 for the Setouchi International Art Festival that was held in the Takamatsu Port area of Japan.

The open gallery space features a 25cm-thick white, concrete, curvy shell with with two elliptical openings connecting the visitor with the outside world, through beatuful views of the sky and landscape.

Its fluid shape and neutral color are an extension of the site and seamlessly bridge the relastionship with the ground.
