  • This wonderful building really shows what a truly talented architect can do to shape space and contain art. Memorable scene include the swimming pool illusion and the incredible full height glass...

  • We went to an amazing exhibition when we went. Super clean museum and just good vibes. Loved the quiet room with the sun roof to rest and hide from the heat!
  • Swimming pool is really cool. Rest of the exhibition I don't get it very much. A few outdoor installation is good as well.
