It's been a while since we had any updates from teamLab on the reopening of its world-renowned Borderless digital art museum, which closed its Odaiba location in August 2022.
Now we have a bit of good news: the attraction is set to reopen in Azabudai Hills in central Tokyo in January 2024.
The buzz initially hinted at a 2023 reopening, but the slight delay won’t keep us waiting much longer because January is just around the corner.
If we've learned anything from teamLab’s previous offerings, the experience will be worth the wait.
This brand-new location looks to be a promising recreation of the original teamLab Borderless facility, which won a Guinness World Record title in 2021 for being the most visited museum dedicated to a single group or artist in the world.
The museum will feature some familiar installations – but reworked, of course – as well as new interactive works that have never been seen in Japan before.
A few notable installations that have been named so far include 'Proliferating Immense Life' plus 'Birth' and 'Sea of Clouds', both from the 'Light Sculpture’ series.
The exact opening date of the all-new Borderless has yet to be announced, but we’ll keep you updated as soon as more information is revealed. In the meantime, the teamLab Planets museum remains open and ready to dazzle. Until recently, the latter was anticipated to close at the end of 2023 but is now set to remain open through 2027.
