Created by Tadao Ando, this building, which is pinned to the lawn like a black origami insect, has housed the world dreamt up by fashioner designer Issey Miyake since 2007. This unusual site puts on four exhibitions a year with a view to rediscovering and interpreting everyday objects and events through the prism of the most innovative design.
