sou fujimoto's geometric naoshima pavilion opens in kagawa, japan

french architect and filmmaker vincent hecht has documented japanese architect sou fujimoto’s latest project, a temporary geometric structure perched on kagawa’s shoreline. the immersive seven meter polyhedron, named the ‘naoshima pavilion’, is constructed using a white stainless steel mesh and allows visitors to enter inside its angular frame. the pavilion will form part of 2016’s setouchi international art festival, which is held every three years.
