The Festival Hall is Japan’s first concert hall. In order to blend better into the surrounding parklands, the complex was kept as low as possible. The heavy cornice and roof superstructures are reminiscent of the oeuvre of Le Corbusier, for whom Maekawa had previously worked. Directly adjacent to the hall stands the National Museum of Western Art, designed by Le Corbusier himself.
