Midtown stream and Design Sight

Winter

On a cold winter night the artificial steam runs across the Roppongi Midtown park. On the edge of the park area, sits a low-rise building home of the 21_21 Design Sight museum, created by architect Tadao Ando and fashion designer Issey Miyake.

Notes

The name 21_21 Design Sight was derived from a logical conclusion: in English perfect sight is described as «20/20 vision» and a sharp eye combined with perceptive insight is essential to the creation of good design. The name hints at the fact that looking beyond the here and now to the future is essential to the design process.
