Inujima is a small island off Okayama in the Seto Inland Sea. Inujima has become known as a site for modern art in recent years and serves as a venue of the Setouchi Triennale modern art festival.

A small rural village, on the northeast part of island, occupies Inujima. It is home to about one hundred people. Scattered across the small, peaceful village are the five galleries of the Inujima Art House Project and have become permanent attractions on the island. They can all be explored in a pleasant 1-2 hour walk through the narrow lanes of the village.

Our proposal is to create the balance between the power attractions places of Inujima by creating new pavilions through the use of the traditional “five senses” model (sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste) as references, and locating them in an appropriate spatial condition place through invest the environment aspects in the island, and connect all the pavilions with one path, and letting the visitors to experience their senses, and explore the rest part of Inujima. By spreading all pavilions on all the island and each pavilion contains its own unique set of sense feeling.
