The poetry of places

 

The construction of the museum was entrusted to the architect Shigeru Ban . The latter, internationally recognized for his paper and cardboard structures and his humanitarian commitments, has created here a set of three buildings as an invitation to contemplation.

The central building, whose unique inverted cone shape is covered with a wooden latticework, is a true architectural marvel . This cone representing Mount Fuji and its reflection in the waters of the basin echo the sacred mountain visible on the horizon which is also reflected in the basin.
