Private Gallery by Tadao Ando & Tokujin Yoshioka & Olafur Eliasson

The images you see above are the culmination of three incredibly creative minds coming together to create something amazingly beautiful. The building itself was designed by Tadao Ando, the metallic, geometric patterns all over the surface of the building were created by Olafur Elisasson (who’s exhibit I just saw at the MOMA in SF, it was amazing), and the amazing bar inside was created by Tokujin Yoshioka.

The images were pulled from Yoshioka’s website, which also talks about the bar, which was made out of the same type of glass that they use in giant telescopes. The bar area was called Waterfall because of how the glass appears to be rippling. Sadly, this private gallery space is in Japan, so my chances of seeing it are slim to none.
