To avoid damaging Setouchi's breathtaking scenery, most of the museum was built underground. The building, designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando, houses permanent displays of artworks by Claude Monet, James Turrell, and Walter De Maria. While located underground, the space and artworks appear different throughout the day and the season due to the natural light shining in.
