The eight movable galleries that sit within the water basin were conceived by Shigeru Ban with inspiration from the islands of the Seto Inland Sea. Incorporating Hiroshima’s shipbuilding technology, this unique architectural design allows the galleries to be moved by floating them on the water. The walls of the exhibition hall are rearranged for each exhibition.
