Japanese Museums, 日本の博物館

Sophie RICHARD in conversation with KODAI Yuichi


  In conjunction with the publication of ‘The Art Lover’s Guide to Japanese Museums’ in July 2019, Japan House hosted a talk on Japanese museums by its author, art historian and researcher Sophie RICHARD. While explaining the methodologies and scope of her research, she was joined in conversation by Swiss-based architect KODAI Yuichi to discuss museum design with a focus on one particular building, the art pavilion KOHTEI. Designed by SANDWICH INC (of which Kodai Yuichi is a member) and contemporary artist Kohei Nawa, the award-winning KOHTEI was built in the Shinshoji Zen Museum and Gardens in Fukuyama in 2017. In conversation with Kodai, Sophie discussed why the building was chosen as the cover for her new book, providing a catalyst to explore why museums should be telling stories and how it is possible to unravel them.
