The design of the Sony Building which closed in March 2017 was inspired by the structure of the Guggenheim Museum in New York, which houses a large collection of modern art. "#003 The Waiting Room" is the first experimental program to be held together with modern artists at Ginza Sony Park, which has opened for a limited time at the old site of the Sony Building.
