The National Art Centre
Yesterday we headed to the National Art Centre for a bit of culture. The building is pretty stunning and looks like a massive ripple from the outside. The inside is a winning combination of natural wood and manmade concrete that the Japanese seem to do so well and so tastefully. I love the space-age 'cones' that rise grandly out of the floor with a restaurant balanced on top. We saw an exhibition on portraiture, mostly from the 16th century. It's not really my cup of tea and such a contrast to the interior of the gallery, but I'll be heading back to see other exhibitions in the future.
