"On the island of Naoshima off the picturesque coast of western Japan, Japanese architect Tadao Ando has built a spectacular structure comprised of basic geometric forms. Situated on cliffs overlooking the straits of Seto-Naikai, the building provides a congenial setting for the presentation of numerous undisputed masterpieces of artistic reduction, including several of Claude Monet's incomparable Water Lilies, monumental sculptures by Walter de Maria, and meditative light installations by James Turrell. Here, on the island of Naoshima off the picturesque coast of western Japan, the heirs of the publisher Fukutake have realized posthumously his lifelong dream of an expansive museum environment, a private estate filled with sculptures, installations, Land Art, and artists' houses.
