The Naoshima Pavilion by Sou Fujimoto is one of the more recent additions to the world-renowned “Art Island,” and is located only meters away from Naoshima’s boat terminal (designed by SANAA). The lightweight, highly-transparent mesh-like steel structure was conceived and constructed for the 2016 Setouchi Triennial. Photographer Laurian Ghinitoiu has turned his lens to the project which, in spite of its modest size, casts a striking silhouette on the island’s coastline.

Sou Fujimoto’s Polyhedral Pavilion Shapes The Art Island of Japan

Located a few meters from the terminal of Naoshima, the Japanese island better known as the “Art Island”, Sou Fujimoto’s Pavilion appears as a translucent and lightweight diamond perched on the coastal edge of Kagawa, visible from SANAA’s ferry terminal welcoming the visitors to the island.
