Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art.

The Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art is located on the waterfront in Kobe, and was opened in 2002 as part of the post-earthquake reconstruction.

Designed by Tadao Ando, an architect I am coming to appreciate more and more. The Hyogo musuem is in many ways similar to the Fort Worth museum he built at around the same time.

I will post more later, but for now here are some of the spiral staircase between 2 of the 3 main buildings.
