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.’

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.

Rokkō Shidare Observatory
Sambuichi Architects
Kobe, Japan

The Rokkō Shidare Observatory in Kobe, Japan, is an unusual observatory. It is perched on the top of Mount Rokkō almost a thousand yards above sea level, but here, rather than to observe the surrounding landscape, visitors are meant to witness nature and its shifting states.
