The Naoshima Plan "The Water"
The structure was interpreted by the architect Hiroshi Sambuichi, that the townscapes of Honmura, Naoshima were built to pass on "moving materials" like "wind" and "water" as if they were batons in a relay race. Having found not only in the beauty of the "moving materials" itself, but also in the community where it is carefully handed over to neighboring houses, Sambuichi emerged the beauty of the two through the renovation of the old house. He manifested the characteristic of Honmura housings of adjacent rooms aligned south-north, and installed the pool filled with rich well water. If you put your feet into the pool from the windblown pier, you can see and feel the "moving materials" of Naoshima.
