The National Art Center was opened on January 21, 2007, boasting the largest exhibition space of any museum in Japan.
This unique and innovative art exhibition facility was designed by Kisho Kurokawa, who also designed the new Kuala Lumpur Airport and the Exhibition Wing of the Van Gogh Museum.
Hidden away in the back streets between Nogizaka and Roppongi Stations, as you approach the National Art Center Tokyo, it looms like a giant melting iceberg.
The building is made up of seven enormous column-less display rooms, each 2000m², a library, an auditorium, a restaurant, a cafe and a museum shop.
