The Bubbles of Naoshima

The Japanese architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nihsizawa or Sanaa recently completed a new ferry terminal at the island of Teshima. A pavilion-boat terminal - bike shed - rest-stop made of a wooden frame over which FRP spheres are wrapped.
I think the project works very well on this small Japanese island. I like the way the building, although completely alien in its form, fits well in its context. The structure is being compare to a cloud, but maybe it’s the colour, or the shape itself that has something that, to me, feels very organic and sea-like.
