Taiko Shono

Urban landscape

Onahama Port, Japan

December 2001
The amazingly sensitive urban landscape made by Taiko Shono in Onahama in the Fukushima Prefecture, Japan is a sensual poem to the movements, scents, sounds and sights of the sea. And quite unlike anything else that has ever been built before. It is a most astonishing work, marvellously and appropriately named 'Wave Wave, Wave' and 'Sea-Cat Tails'.
