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.
