The National Art Center, Tokyo

The National Art Center, Tokyo is a unique and innovative art exhibition facility: Instead of maintaining a permanent collection, it makes the most of a total of 14,000 square meters of exhibition space, one of the largest in Japan, and focuses on serving as a venue for various art exhibitions. The Center also promotes outreach activities through its educational programs, and the Art Library serves to collect and disseminate information related to art.

Inside a hall, it has an art library, an auditorium, etc., and the restaurant, the cafe, and the museum shop are also substantial.

The glass curtain wall covering the front draws a beautiful curve to undulate like a wave, and can enjoy the view of the garden which was planted to melt into the neighboring green tract of land of the circumferences, such as Aoyama park, over this glass curtain wall.

Located in Tokyo, an international city that attracts people, products, and information from all over Japan as well as the rest of the world, the Center will provide people with opportunities to experience diverse values and contribute to bringing forth a new culture based on the idea of mutual understanding and symbiotic relationship.

The building where undulating molding is impressive was designed by Kisho Kurokawa, and the emblem and the logotype were designed by Mr. Kashiwa Sato. The brasserie by Mr. Paul Bocuse enters it in the hall, too.
