The Naoshima Plan "JU"
The concept of architect Hiroshi Sambuichi's "The Naoshima Plan" is to highlight the nature of the "moving materials" of Air, Water, and Sun across the whole island in order to reaffirm their beauty and significance and pass them on to the next generation. The building is based on the traditional Japanese "nagaya" longhouse and is designed to be inhabited by people who come here truly desiring to become one with the island. This building itself, though still under construction, is exhibited to the public every spring and autumn. Through making use of traditional Japanese construction methods, the aim is to provoke visitors to ponder what it means to inhabit our earth intellectually through residential architecture that combines earthquake resistance with the wonders of "moving materials."
