The Ehime Prefectural Science Museum is situated on the hillside overlooking Niihama and the Inland sea.

It opened in 1994 and was designed by Kisho Kurokawa, an internationally-renowned Japanese architect who I am not very familiar with, but I have seen his Mojiko Retro Tower.

The complex of buildings uses geometric shapes... cone, triangle, cube, sphere,  semi-circles etc as well as a large reflective pool.

Embodied in the concrete is titanium, granite, and marble.
