TeamLab to open their very own digital museum in Tokyo in summer 2018

Fans of Instagram-worthy and digital art pieces have something to look forward to: TeamLab, the self-styled 'ultra-technologists', are opening their own museum on Odaiba this summer. That's right – the people behind the very popular 2016 installation with e-commerce business DMM (pictured below) will get to do whatever they want with a 10,000sqm space inside the huge Odaiba Palette Town development, courtesy of the Mori Building group. 

The name is a bit of a mouthful, though. But we think 'Mori Building Digital Art Museum TeamLab Borderless' will eventually be known as 'TeamLab Museum' colloquially. 

So far, it looks like TeamLab will be sticking to their digital roots, with constantly changing, interactive installations that span the entire space and incorporate touches of nature, such as their waterfall projection in Shikoku and this flowery digitalised restaurant in Ginza

Exact details are sparse at the moment, but more will be revealed in months to come. The bets are on whether this, the Leandro Erlich exhibition or the Yayoi Kusama Museum will be 2018's biggest Instagram hit... Keep your eyes peeled and free up your calendar once tickets go on sale.
