Naoshima Hall
Sambuichi Architects
Naoshima Island, Japan

The Naoshima Hall project, by Hiroshi Sambuichi, places a beautifully nuanced building in Honmura, an old castle town on the island’s eastern edge. It is at once a work of art, an astonishing piece of architecture, and a symbol of Sambuichi’s research into this island’s many ‘flows.’
