Explore the wonderful art and architecture of Tadao Ando
There is a lot to learn about Tadao Ando at Naoshima. Ando is one of Japan’s most eminent architects and designers from various galleries and museums on the island. Inspired by Japanese Shintoism, Ando’s designs often use scattered concrete shapes and empty spaces to emphasize nothingness and the beauty of simplicity.
We can organize special access to the Casa Benesse Oval, a wonderful structure sunk into the forest floor at the top of the slope and accessible by a small funicular. The central patio has a large oval-shaped pool; a liquid sculpture that reflects the beauty of the Seto Inland Sea.
