Japanese architect Jun Murata, has used colorful containers to create an arts center accommodating architects and designers from various countries to exhibit and organize their art works in these volumes.

The Arts Center is an architecture where colorful containers are layered like building blocks. The architect inserted a white container on it and a short container, referred to as “closed space”, is connected to the outside of the container used as a guest room. Here, the field of view is narrow closed, and it connects to the outside world through only the openings facing the sky. From these two rectangular openings, the light is sometimes strong and sometimes softly poured into the interior.

In addition, a 12 m long container named "Tunnel" was connected to the outside. This space has no east-west wall and leads to the rich greenery and scenery beyond that. There is a slit on the south side, and a vertical light beam cuts the inside. The top of the small stairs on the east side has water. The trees in the garden are reflected on the surface of the water with the light coming from the east. The wind passes directly, and the reflected light glitters inside while shaking the water surface.
