Nebuta Museum Wa Rasse

The façade of the museum was designed to look like traditional Japanese rope curtains being parted with ones hands. The design was achieved using 12 meter long steel plates, each with its own unique curvature. The ultra-long steel plates were fabricated using forging technology, and elastic-range experimental data was collected to create natural curves by twisting the plates.
