On the island of Naoshima off the coast of western Japan, Japanese architect Tadao Ando has built a spectacular structure comprised of basic geometric forms. Situated on cliffs overlooking the straits of Seto-Naikai, the building provides a congenial setting for the presentation of numerous masterpieces of artistic reduction, including several of Claude Monet's Water Lilies, sculptures by Walter de Maria, and light installations by James Turrell. This publication presents the building in photographs by Naoya Hatakeyama and Ryuji Miyamoto, showing both the construction site and the completed museum.
