U2 singer Bono has hired Japanese architect Tadao Ando to design a museum in France, according to a report on a U2 fan site.

The gallery is expected to be built in Paris and will reflect the minimalist style of the Pulitzer-prize winning architect responsible for the Azuma House and Church of Light in Japan among other works.

It is not Bono’s first foray into high-end architecture; throughout this year the band has met with controversy for its planned U2 Tower in Dublin which, if built, will be the tallest building in the city.

Bono also owns a number of houses throughout Dublin and plans to use Ando’s services to design a house in France, according to the website.
