The day I visited Ryue Nishizawa of SANAA’s concrete bubble collaboration with artist Rei Naito, it was raining. I took one quiet step into this ocean of grey, warm concret and felt my heart slow down, my mind went fuzzy and life seemed, can I say this - perfect for the several minuets I spent time here. 

If you are ever in Japan, take the time to visit Teshima.  The island is lush, green, have a hot chocolate and deep breath, 1, 2, 3.
