On the small island of Inujima in the Seto Inland Sea, Kazuyo Sejima & Associates have designed a spectacular series of installations among the traditional houses of a declining village. A walk through Inujima Art House Project lets you experience some of the finest traits of contemporary Japanese architecture.
Dramatically placed a few meters above terrain overlooking the Øresund strait, Denmark’s new national aquarium in Copenhagen, The Blue Planet, stands as a connecting link between land and sea. The swirling curves of the building draws the visitors inside, just like the circulating currents of the whirlpool that inspired its shape.
In the middle of nowhere, on the small island of Inujima in the Seto Inland Sea off the southeast coast of Japan, lies a quite unique museum. The Seirensho Art Museum by Hiroshi Sambuichi is an idealistic project with a vision of regional revitalization through reuse of the island's industrial heritage.
