In the bustling heart of Tokyo’s latest large-scale development, beneath the city’s tallest skyscraper, a dedicated team of builders and digital artists is swiftly crafting an extraordinary museum. This unique space, envisioned by the global collective of artists known as teamLab, previously earned a Guinness World Record with over 2 million visitors in 2019 at their Borderless museum on Odaiba island. Showcasing digital art pieces seamlessly blending into one another, the museum encourages visitors to explore at their own pace. Closed last year for redevelopment by Mori Building, a leading Japanese developer, the museum is scheduled to reopen in February at the Azabudai Hills complex in central Tokyo.

Mori Building’s strategic vision includes integrating cultural attractions into their combined business and residential projects, making the relocation of teamLab’s Borderless Museum a pivotal aspect of their plan. The impending opening of the Mori JP Tower, standing tall at 330 meters, marks the centerpiece of this development, surrounded by the ongoing construction of shopping areas, homes, medical facilities, and a school. teamLab, celebrated for its experimental and interactive art that seamlessly merges images and senses, is diligently working on new installations for the Borderless facility, such as “Flowers and People,” a continuous computer projection of blooming petals, and “Bubble Universe,” a mirrored room with twinkling bulbs that create an illusion of extending into infinity. According to teamLab founder Toshiyuki Inoko, their goal is to craft an experience that captures the beauty of continuity, offering visitors a unique and immersive encounter within this expansive realm dedicated to digital art.
