From the architect. 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 25cm thick concrete shell with two elliptical openings that are open to elements.  Iwan Baan shows on his website a great photo set of the art museum which can be viewed here.

Yep, let's pour concrete into every green place that's still been left untouched.

As a one interior view very nice. As a building, complitely boring, design took propably 5 minutes with rhino.

Allan · July 26, 2011 02:18 PM

It took long time of practice and experience to achieve that in maybe 5 minutes or 5000 minutes (I don't know)

Tuf Pak · July 21, 2011 06:36 PM

My god! I hope we never come to the point where a project's merits are judged by the time it takes to model something.

This is a stunning project in all respects.

luke · July 19, 2011

not to ask the boring question, but where does the art go?

David · July 20, 2011 06:26 PM

The "art" is the building, the people, the water, the air, the view, in other words "life".

The museum is (on top of being an amazing building) a critique of the fact that nowadays art is put is special "dead" places (museums) where it's separated from the rest of the world.

(in short)

David · July 20, 2011 06:22 PM

The "art" is the museum itself, the people in it, water drops, the wind, the changing view from the holes, in other words, life itself.

The Teshima Art Museum reflects and criticize the fact that nowadays art is usually put in special places (museums) where it is separated from life and can't be experienced in any way but looking at it as if it was a sacred artifact.

(source: statements from the artists that I've read here and there, included on Teshima)

james · July 20, 2011 12:44 AM

From what i've heard i believe it's a permanent art installation involving water. water beads rise out of the concrete floor in the morning, and slowly roll across the sloped surfaces of the floor, eventually collecting together into shallow puddles. Over the course of the day the water will slowly evaporate, and the process starts again the next day.

observer · July 20, 2011 12:01 AM

haha, i thought the same thing. it is a valid question, though.
