WHITE CUBES
Towada Art Center| 十和田市現代美術館

Occupying an entire block on the city’s main avenue, Towada Art Center is comprised of 16 white cubes interconnected by glass hallways. The cubes, some themselves with walls of glass, allow for a dialogue between city and museum, between passersby looking in and museum goers looking out. Ryue Nishizawa’s unique design creates an open, inviting space that serves to highlight the museum’s 38 site-specific works.
