Kunibiki means "land pulling", and refers to an ancient Izumo legend. Messe is the German word for "Fair".

It opened in 1992 and was designed by Shin Takamatsu.

We have a lot of buildings by Takamatsu in Shimane as he is a local man, from Nima.

  3. Well, what can I say? I think it's a good building. Everything is brilliant and we can't ignore this kind of technology, specially if we are studying architecture. This'll be an important tool to learn about this techniques.
