Museum Commercial Building

Hiromoto Oki

Architecture, Building and Structure Design Museum Commercial Building by Hiromoto Oki Museum is a commercial building located in Wakayama, Japan. The building is situated in a quayside area and from a boat it seems to float on the sea, and from a car, it gives the incredible impression of swaying, so that it is intimately linked with the visual qualities of the marine environment. This impression of swaying takes place because a glass wall and the inner solid wall have different design properties, and as a consequence create this unlikely but beautiful effect. The facility aims to be both a centre of culture in Tanabe and also to provide a vital area for recreation.
