Van Gogh Museum Exposition wing
The exposition wing of the Van Gogh Museum is designed by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa. He is mainly known for his original design for several Japanese museum, and for the airport in Kuala Lumpur. Characteristic for his work is the use of simple geometric shapes, like cones, ellipses and squares. The buildings embody the symbioses between the eastern and western principles of philosophy and architecture. For the extension to the Van Gogh museum he started with a very sober design, which joins the existing museum perfectly. The rational (western) geometry joins the eastern asymmetry.
