  • the design of the building is a dream for architects or lovers of architecture, the infinity pond is extraordinary and the sand garden and bamboo background is breathtaking  more »
  • First, get someone to describe the building. The architect did an amazing job. The exhibition was interesting. It also is a great place to have a meeting or a reception.  more »
  • Great place to take visitors and local friends too. It's always interesting especially when they have an exhibit or a tour guide. The building is both laid back and spectacular.  more »

  • We have always heard nothing but positive reviews about this place and passed by it several times in the past. Finally made a visit almost on a whim and could not have been happier with the impressive quality in both the magnificent architecture of the building and the excellence of the exhibits (at the time of our visit, it was Wondrous World - Art & Islam through Time and Space). We highly recommend everyone to visit here. If for nothing else, sitting by and looking out at the fountain patio (pictured) upstairs alone is well worth the tranquil and mindful atmosphere this place so successfully represent.
  • I love this place. It has performances and festivals all centered in Asian cultures. The facility is immaculate. The architecture is super modern and futuristic. I may be a little old fashioned. I felt very content and I want to visit Asia Society more often. Yes, I got my membership and I'll be back.
  • We had a wonderful tour of the building architecture and the bamboo exhibit today. The docent was highly knowledgeable and the exhibits were amazing.
  • The yoga class on Tuesday led by Roshmi is held is a wonderfully tranquil space. I would recommend a visit to anyone
  • Intimate, quiet, meditative space currently hosting a remarkable bamboo craft exhibition. A 2014 local AIA architectural award winner.
