tokyo: 3331 arts chiyoda opening

the opening of a new multi-storey contemporary arts center in tokyo's akihabara area took place earlier this month [grand opening is scheduled on jun 26]. dubbed 3331 arts chiyoda, a name peculiarly derived from traditional tejime handclapping and translated into numbers, the multi-level art center aims to become a new hub for artistic development in metropolitan tokyo and to increase dialogues with east asian arts communities. location: 6-11-14 sotokanda [akihabara]. © 3331 arts chiyoda - building façade and entrance [top] and exhibition space [bottom]
