Glass Tea House Mondrian is now permanently installed on Naoshima!
Although Hirosho Sugimoto is primarily known for his photography, his practice extends across a wide range of media, including sculpture, installation, and traditional forms of Japanese theater. Glass Tea House "Mondrian" is Sugimoto's first architectural work in Europe. He has built a pavilion of extraordinary beauty in a formerly unused space on San Giorgio Island, Venice. The tea house - a house on stilts and rocks, surrounded by water - brings to mind the many islands that make up Venice. Like Sugimoto's photographs, this work conveys a meditative, almost religious atmosphere: it is an oasis of calmness that invokes time and memory.
