Description   The National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto is located in the heart of historic Kyoto. As such, the appropriate expression of the 20th century's modern spirit with a sensitive context served as the most important design theme. The exterior design was kept modest because of its location in a scenic district. The interior provides for a variety of functions, including temporary and permanent exhibition spaces, storage, and an auditorium. A 1.5-meter grid was used for the basic exterior module - representing horizontality and verticality, present and past, transparency and mass, and the duality of Japanese and Western influences.
