With Kazuyo Sejima 妹岛和世
by Xiang Yiwei, Sun Zhixing, Yao xun and Niu Jing
I had the opportunity of doing a half-year workshop with sejima in Politecnico di Milano, and in the past six months we have learned a lot from her personal views on the uniqueness of the building. This project is in inijima island of Japan. The island used to be an industrial island dominated by mining, but it stopped mining in the later period, and the masses left the island one after another, leaving only a few elderly people. The purpose of this workshop is to revitalize the island through a series of design measures. The idea of our group is based on to see the whole island as an art musuem with some focused areas. Three distinctive bases were selected on the island to make three different art-themed exhibition park, namely the quarry exhibition park, the natural exhibition pavilion above the pit and the the exhibition hall transformed from the copper refinery. When people are travelling from one pavillion to another they are also visiting the beautiful landscapes of the island. We hope that people from other places will gradually come to the island to visit or live with regular or permanent art activities.
我有幸在米兰理工大学（Politecnico di Milano）被选中参与妹岛和世为期半年的workshop，在过去的六个月里，我们从她对建筑独特的个人看法中学到了很多东西。该项目位于日本的犬岛。该岛过去曾是一个以采矿为主的工业岛，但后来却停止采矿，群众纷纷离开该岛，只剩下一些老人。该workshop的目的是通过一系列设计措施振兴该岛。我们小组的想法是基于将整个岛屿视为一个艺术博物馆,并设置一些重点展览场地。在岛上选择了三个具有特色的基地，形成三个不同的艺术主题展览公园，即采石场展览公园，矿坑胡自然展馆和铜炼厂改建的展厅。当人们从一个展馆旅行到另一个展馆时，他们也在参观岛上沿途美丽的风景。我们希望来自其他地方的人们会逐渐来到岛上参观或参加定期或永久的艺术活动，从而使得犬岛重新焕发生机。
