the new IPMU

IPMU (the Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe) officially opened its new building this week. Ben Burton and I were in Tokyo visiting and I took some photos.

The building is quite nice -- spatious, comfortable offices, many small seminar rooms. And tea time every day at 3pm. Unfortunately we left Tokyo two days before the official opening but it was a productive week for us.

These three photos are looking out from my office into the main atrium, left-to-right. It gives a rough sense of the building.
