Mondrian by Hiroshi Sugimoto, an artist hailing from Japan, is a stunning place that blends the outdoors with the indoors in such a way that it almost seems as though there is no barrier whatsoever. As its apt name gives away, it is made out of glass. Save for a couple small wooden details, that is the predominantly material used, which gives it the illusion that it is see-through all together.

Created for the 14th Biennale di Venezia – International Architecture, which is taking place from the beginning of June to the end of November of this year, Mondrian by Hiroshi Sugimoto is a tribute to the Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian. It is located at Le Stanze del Vetro in the middle of a shallow pool.
