We are pleased to announce the June 17, 2017 publication of a comprehensive catalog introducing
the new KOHTEI art pavilion, designed by sculptor Kohei Nawa with SANDWICH, and located in
the Shinshoji Zen Museum and Gardens in Fukuyama, Hiroshima Prefecture. The catalog, entitled
KOHTEI KOHEI NAWA｜SANDWICH, presents all aspects of the work, including the architecture,
the installation in the interior and the landscape, from a variety of viewpoints.
The catalog includes an essay by architecture historian and critic Taro Igarashi, photographs by
photographer Nobutada Omote, enabling readers to feel the aura of KOHTEI, images by Gottingham
that highlight features of the materials, concept text by Kohei Nawa, images of the building process
