Toyo Ito Architecture Museum Japan

On the Island of Omishima, Japanese architect Toyo Ito has completed his eponymous Toyo Ito Architecture Museum, the first ever Japanese museum dedicated to the work of an individual architect. The angular steel structure is sculpted to mimic the deck of a ship as it sits on a seaside ledge overlooking Seto Inland Sea, providing scenic views and cool breezes for the museum patrons. The exterior architecture directly translates to the interior design, which is wrapped in birch wood and is left minimalistic in decor.
