Pavilion of the Sardine

BY TARDITS MANUEL
@ VOL 147 ON MAY 31, 2017

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.
