Completed in 1958, the East building was formerly the main hall of the Kagawa Prefectural Government office building, designed by Kenzo Tange, who incorporated many elements inspired by Le Corbusier. Tange was introduced to the then-governor through artist Genichiro Inokuma, which led to a collaboration of sorts, with Inokuma creating vibrant tile murals installed in the lobby.
