More of a landscaping project than an architectural one, the Yumebutai complex perfectly mirrors the concept of Japanese architecture in which the landscape is seen as an atmosphere in the process of becoming, rather than an object of design.

Yumebutai, Hawajishima <br>Tadao Ando 2000 The result is a huge complex in which nature and architecture, the natural and built landscape, come together in a great celebration of life, offering a variety of areas, parks and facilities where people can meet to spend their leisure time together.
These are irregularly shaped spaces where hotels, conference rooms and greenhouses alternate with gardens, piazzas and a beach dotted with thousands of seashells.
The idea goes back to 1989, when the idea of building a big park in an area spoiled by man was first aired. The chosen area identified as soon as the project was proposed was a vacant piece of land where soil had been continuously removed since the '50s to fill in Osaka Bay.
Before the Yumebutai project, the area it stands on was just a reddish escarpment.
After the earthquake, the project became a commemoration of the 6,000 victims as well as a place of comfort and renewal.
