This project continues from the Seirensho project opened in April 2008, and is being undertaken in the residential areas of Inujima, Japan.
SANAA has created three galleries and the Nakanotani Gazebo, which transform sand revitalizes the scenery of the island. The works of artist Yukinori Yanagi will also be exhibited. By contrast with the Seirensho, which is presented against the backdrop of Inujima’s historical landscape, the Inujima Art House Project will introduce art spaces into daily life, and will transform the scenery of the island’s residential areas.
F-Art House is designed as a part of the Inujima Art House project, an initiative developed thorough a collaboration of Sejima and art director Yuko Hasegawa to beautify the village on the island of Inujima in Japan by installing exhibition pavilions among the traditional houses. three art galleries opened in 2010 — F-Art House, S-Art house, and I-Art House — which display special artworks. Two new galleries have opened in 2013 — A-Art House and C-Art House — which will exhibit works by five artists.
