The Kirin Plaza Osaka, located in the heart of the city just north of the infamous Ebisubashi bridge (from which Hanshin Tigers fans plunge into the murky Dotombori canal), was designed by prize winning architect Shin Takamatsu and erected in 1987.
Since its construction, the Kirin Plaza Osaka has built a formidable reputation in the international contemporary art circuit but caused few ripples beyond, despite its prime location--and the fact that it is far more than just an art complex.
"We had to keep this very quiet beforehand," said Yoshiaki Sakou, an employee at Kirin Plaza Osaka. "There are 400 Kirin employees in Kansai alone, and if they had known about this event they'd all have wanted to come."
