the design of the building is a dream for architects or lovers of architecture, the infinity pond is extraordinary and the sand garden and bamboo background is breathtaking

First, get someone to describe the building. The architect did an amazing job. The exhibition was interesting. It also is a great place to have a meeting or a reception.

Great place to take visitors and local friends too. It's always interesting especially when they have an exhibit or a tour guide. The building is both laid back and spectacular.

Let me start by saying that this review is more about an event that I went to at the center, rather than the center itself. I recently visited the center for the first time, to attend their annual AsiaFest. I love these types of cultural...More

This place is so out of the way it was almost empty. I loved the exhibit of bamboo creations by expert Japanese craftspeople/artists. And the building it self is well designed.
