3 x 3 x 3 – A Symphony of Architecture
An architecture of triangles, three stories, and triple semantic connotations of “the environment, culture, and humanity”. It is the very first art museum on campus in the world by the Pritzker Architecture Prize winner and architect Tadao Ando – Asia University Museum of Modern Art.
Throughout the interior and exterior of the art museum, techniques of misplacement, displacement, and overlaying of the building volume are employed to reconstruct the three faces of the three triangles as a geometrical shape and create a form of space flowing. From the designing to the detailed adjustment, it took a total of 6.5 years to complete the construction.
Architect Tadao Ando introduces three unique concepts of architecture, ushering in a revolutionary content in accordance with the rhythm of space composition for artworks that formerly viewed as still objects. Amidst the interplay of light and shadow that is natural, free, and liberal, Asia University Museum of Modern Art embodies the harmonious symphony of architecture and art, orchestrating a novel exhibition experience for the visitors to the art museum.
