-齊藤 正(VAKA)


The character is an expression of the most accurate culture, a self-portrait, and the best paradigm of the diversity of the world. Japanese, Hebrew, Arabic, Latin, Chinese, Greek, Russian, and Hindi are used for this roof.

This shape is from the shape of shellfish.

The shellfish is always making its house in the circumference of the body. It is hommage to the sea that is the bridge of a different culture.

-Jaume Plensa


This pavilion was constructed as a project of Setouchi International Art Festival 2010. The project started as a building that carried out functions such as shops and cafes exhibiting the sculpture of Jaume Plensa. In the purpose to exhibit the art to permanent, the ideal of architecture is that exists in shape to erase the appearance.

Originally, arts wrapped in architecture. In this pavilion, the architecture wrapped in the art.
