The facilities include special sections, such as the Exhibition Space, Learning Space, and Contemplative Space; and three garden areas, including the Vestibule Garden, the Roji Garden, and finally, the Water-Mirror Garden, in which Kanazawa is symbolized by the reflection of the surrounding sloping greenery against stone walls.
Designed by Yoshio Taniguchi, renovation architect of the MoMA in New York City.
