Video: Teshima Art Museum

In 2011, our team and Office of Ryue Nishizawa documented Teshima Art Museum – designed by Ryue Nishizawa for the artwork by artist Rei Naito – while it was constructed. The concrete shell slab with freeform curvature – spanning maximum of 60 m (197 ft) – was created without a seam by pouring concrete over the earthen form.

May 2013 issue of A+U is dedicated to works by Ryue Nishizawa who – together with Kazuyo Sejima – was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 2010. Teshima Art Museum is one of the projects featured in the magazine which surveys all of his works from Weekend House (1998) to recent in-progress projects.
