Kazuyo Sejima designed a park-like building — Osaka University of Arts in Japan, without the border between inside and outside structure blend into the surroundings and gives direct visual connections to the rest of the campus.

Kazuyo Sejima has gently placed the concrete and glass faculty building on top of the curved site at the Osaka University of Arts campus. The interiors of the the glass and concrete structure blend into the surroundings and ensure direct visual connections to the rest of the campus. The ground floor has been designed to be as flexible as possible, with tables and chairs arranged throughout its open plan. More private spaces have been placed at the perimeter of the structure, separated by aluminum panels from the rest of the building.

Captured here by Mengzhu Jiang and Vincent Hecht, the interior is show us as a space without limits, blurring the interior and exterior, enlarging the space inside with heights not perceived on the outside.
