This culture and education center is housed in a striking building by Yoshio Taniguchi. He only used the finest materials—Jura limestone from Germany, American Cherry Wood, Basaltina Italian Stone—when building the $48.4 million structure. Along with viewing rotating artworks at the center, you can settle into one of the Brown Foundation Performing Arts Theater’s 273 plush seats, they’re made by the same guys that outfit Ferraris and Maseratis, for a performance or lecture.
