Ken Iwata Mother and Child Museum, Omishima Japan – Toyo Ito

“As most of the artworks are made of bronze and do not require indoor conditions, we attempted to design only the landscape as our first concept. After various studies our proposal developed into a museum simply wrapped around by a concrete wall in form of circular arcs – similar to temporary curtains hung during special events in Japan.” – Toyo Ito

The Ken Iwata Mother and Child Museum is a semi-open museum designed to house 44 pieces of sculptures created by the sculptor Ken Iwata.
