This Toyo Ito-designed cultural institution with galleries, cinema, and a library is one of Japan’s modern architectural masterpieces, and has received international acclaim. The intrinsic glass structure withstood the massive earthquake that shook the Tohoku region in 2011, and became a symbol for Japanese engineering ingenuity that doesn’t compromise great design.
