Pavilion of the Sardine

PRESENTED ON MAY 31, 2017
IN TOKYO @ VOL 147

The Setouchi Triennale 2016, a contemporary art festival held every three years on several islands in the Seto Inland Sea of Japan and the coastal cities of Takamatsu and Tamano, aims to revitalize the region which has suffered from depopulation in recent years. Tonight, we will be centering in on one of the islands, Ibukijima, and its recent addition, “the sardine pavilion”, built entirely out of locally sourced recycled materials. Manuel Tardits from Japanese architecture firm Mikan, along with students of Meiji University, share with us this magical collaboration between a carpenter, a tile maker, ten students, staff, and friends.

Shadows and Light - Architecture, Abroad in Japan

BY WOODBURY UNIVERSITY
@ VOL 125 ON MAY 28, 2015

In referring to Japan's intrinsically and simultaneously traditional and futuristic duality, Woodbury University architecture students on a Japan study away trip ask, "are the shrines and neon places separate from each other?"

They draw attention to architectural examples they discovered in their time in various Japan cities that highlight the focus of their studies, shadows and light.  

 Come and find the correlations with them!
