  • The stunning architecture of 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT
  • Special exhibitions focusing on both innovative and classic movements in the worlds of design and architecture

Before entering 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT, it's worth admiring the beautiful architecture, which is as much a feature of the museum as the exhibits they contain.

Inside the buildings are two large gallery spaces which host a variety of design- and architecture-themed exhibits that, in the words of the museum. "hope to redirect our eyes to everyday things and events from a design point of view."

The smaller Gallery 3 , a presentation space, meanwhile, hosts exhibitions in collaboration with both Japanese and overseas companies that aim to explore design .
