Ryue Nishizawa: Teshima Art Museum, Japan


I discovered the Teshima Art Museum not while I was in Japan but this morning @molostudio and I was completely blown away by it's ethereal poetry.  The Architect, Ryue Nishizawa, conveys a space that flows seamlessly with it's surrounding natural environment like a "droplet of water gliding across the land".  Through the oval openings, the elements are allowed to interact with the structure creating a tangible, audible experience that continually changes.  You can read more about it at designboom.  This is number one on my list when I return to Japan.

If you haven't been there yet, brace yourself. No picture can do it justice (although those you published are the best ever taken).
