ABOUT

ARTBAY TOKYO. A new project that connects Tokyo Waterfront City with art.

A Tokyo Waterfront City where more than 55 million people visit every year.
A multifunctional town consisting of beautiful waterside landscapes, open spaces full of greenery, commercial facilities, corporate locations, and exhibition halls, that provides people with open horizons and peace of mind and creates a new cityscape.

An exciting new project is about to begin.
ARTBAY TOKYO.
Person to person. Place to place. People and places are connected by different forms of art showing a variety of perspectives.
The encounter between Tokyo Waterfront City and art creates a new experience that has never existed before. The aim is to make a “town” that grows day by day so that every time we visit it, we are surprised, discover new things and feel happy.

OPENAugust 8, 2020

INFO. In 2020, we will be marking the official launch of the project with a fitting new pavilion that will be used to provide various opportunities for everyone to interact with art.

CONCEPT white pavilion
Architecture that embraces the natural features of the reclaimed site. 

A refreshing sea breeze passes through the spaces between the walls, soft light comes in through the ceiling, rain that falls permeates through the roof, while the floor gives way to native plants growing freely. 

We have created eight different environments for humans and plants. 

Face the "nature" of this place created by humans in the sea, when colors are given to the architecture, as if on a pure white canvas, new perspectives come to life.

ARTBAY CAFE

  • OPENAugust 8, 2020
  • Tuesday - Friday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
    Saturday, Sunday, and holidays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
    Closed on Mondays (closed on Tuesday when Monday is a national holiday)

CONCEPT
The concept for this cafe is “art & coffee”. I want to combine art and coffee to create a place that brings together various people and things that otherwise would not have met. Coffee can spark conversations and help form new connections between people, which in turn can give rise to new ideas. This program will present a new way of experiencing art that goes beyond merely looking.
