Hiroshi Sambuichi: ‘Cisternerne’ Installation

Japanese architect, Hiroshi Sambuichi, has released his first major international exhibition in Copenhagen. Incorporating forces of nature, derived from his inspiration of natural elements, in which he aggregates to his architectural practice. The entire subterranean space was transformed with vegetation, natural light, and the returning element of water.


Sambuichi also built his own version of the Itsukushima shrine from the island of Miyajima, to compliment and contrast the natural element of water that runs through the reservoir. View more of the installation below. Photography courtesy of Rasmus Hjortshøj
