The Kitakyushu International Conference Center is located in the old port area a 10 minute walk from Kokura train station.
It was opened in 1990 and was designed by Arata Isozaki.
Isozaki was born not far from Kokura in Oita, and at 78 years old is the current grand master of Japanese architecture with prestigous building all over the world.
This is not one of his better known buildings, but I found interesting enough with its combination of curves and angles.
