Naoshima Pavilion – Sou Fujimoto

A temporary pavilion for the 2016 Setouchi Art Trienalle. Constructed of a powdercoated aluminium mesh welded into a multifaceted geometry.

The viewer can enter the pavilion and climb around inside on raking floors. The square aperture of about 40mm is consistent to all faces making it very transparent when close to it. From afar it reads as a more opaque object on the docks of Naoshima. A solid integrated plinth, which continues the geometry with tiling of the same size raises this object off the ground. Despite its’ location it feels separated from the surrounding context.
