A stark white ship that sails in the middle of the bustling sea of colors.

The ship floating on the ocean suddenly appears in a shopping center. It evokes a feeling not of a resort area, but of an exotic corner of a town in some southern country. A feeling of a ship that comes across this area by chance.

I made a public toilet at ShodoshimaIslandas a part of the project of Setouchi Art Festivalin which I came to participate from this time. The site is in the area called “Hishio-no-sato (Native place of sauce)” where pre-modern architecture of soy sauce making warehouse remains collectively most in Japan. These warehouses are authorized as registered tangible cultural property, where soy sauce has been made still in the old-fashioned formula.Framing of a traditional cabin and large cedar barrels on the floor are the characteristic scene.

The site is located in a quiet residential area, which is off a highway along a medium size road. In addition to houses, wooden rented apartments, offices, and shops are mixed in somewhat sparsely among the neighborhood. This building has a rather large volume for a house, and is also larger than the neighboring buildings. Therefore, we intended to fit the building into the surrounding context.
