Hyogo Museum for Wood Culture

It is the text from here.

The Museum for Wood Culture was designed by internationally renowned architect Tadao Ando on a theme of wood, trees and forest. The structure has an oval shape with a diameter of 46m. Inside the wooden oval, it consists of elements typically found in Japanese wooden buildings, such as pillars and beams. The tall pillars soar straight up into the sky to catch the sunlight, expressing the living vitality of a growing forest.
