POTEMKIN – Post Industrial Meditation Park in Echigo-Tsumari, Japan by Casagrande & Rintala

Saturday, April 28th, 2012

Article source: Casagrande & Rintala

Potemkin stands as a post industrial temple, the Acropolis to re-think of the connection between the modern man and nature. I see Potemkin as a cultivated junk yard situated between the ancient rice fields and the river with a straight axis to the Shinto temple.
