An art space located in Tokyo Midtown, it has been directed by three Japanese masters of design, fashion designer Issei Miyake, graphic designer Taku Satoh and product designer Naoto Fukazawa. The main draws here are the exhibitions and other events including talk-shows and workshops. The large-scale steel roofing of the building was designed by architect Tadao Ando and bears his unique curved shape stretching down toward the ground, avoiding a caged-in feel and instead creating comfort.
