One of the most recent achievements in the brilliant career of Japanese architect Tadao Ando is a spectacular structure composed of basic geometric forms. Situated on the island of Naoshima off the picturesque coast of western Japan, the Chichu Art Museum provides a congenial setting for the presentation of an exquisite selection of undisputed masterpieces of artistic reduction, including a monumental sculpture by Walter De Maria, meditative light installations by James Turrell, and a series of Claude Monet's incomparable Water Lilies. The museum, located on cliffs overlooking the straits of the Seto Inland Sea, is the latest part of an expansive museum environment envisioned by the publisher Fukutake - a private estate filled with sculptures, installations, Land Art, and artist pavilions.
This publication presents the building in captivating photographs by Naoya Hatakeyama and Ryuji Miyamoto, showing both the construction site and the completed museum, as well as insightful essays on the treasures contained within.
