The world of Tadao Ando

"The world of Tadao Ando"
Living with Nature
without Time and Space Barriers

The "Awaji Yumebutai" project was scheduled to complete in 1998 to coincide with the opening of the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge. Almost all the operational plans were finished and soon after the construction started, the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake hit the region.

The "Yumebutai", located near the epicenter, was examined after the earthquake. Several active faults were discovered on the premises, which required its design changes. It took two years for the design changes and the construction (B: before the changes). The "Awaji Yumebutai" was opened in March 2000 at the same time as opening of "Awaji Flower Expo- Japan Flora 2000". (A: the present layout)

"Awaji Yumebutai" is designed to hope you feel as many nature elements as possible, such as water, wind, light, shade, mountains, the sky and the ocean, which you might miss on your daily lives.

The 21st century is no longer in an age when nature can take care of itself. Each of us must have a strong will to live together with the environment by taking diligently some kind of actions against nature. Hopefully, this will be a trigger to enhance awareness of the "environment", even if only slightly, such as nature around us including trees in the garden, streams, Mt. Rokko and Osaka Bay as well as long-term global changes including natural disasters like earthquakes.

"Yumebutai" that was born at the turning point of the year 2000. I wish it will be a place surrounded by water and greenery, and continue to fill people with great courage, crossing over the next a thousand years.
