Inujima Seirensho Art Museum

Inujima Seirensho Art Museum utilizes its industrial scenery and repurposes the former copper refinery on the island. The refinery was built in 1909, but ceased its operations only 10 years later due to a dramatic plummet of copper prices. Instead of constructing an entire building, the art museum is set into the existing karami bricks and smokestacks. It is efficiently designed to minimize its impact on the environment.

The museum’s architectural design features its own innovative water purification system and utilizes natural energies from solar to geothermal. Inside, there are works created by Yukinori Yanagi, a vocal critic of Japan’s modernization. His collaboration with architect and designer Hiroshi Sambuichi is the art space we see today. The art gallery has a small store and café inside the Inujima Ticket Center, where visitors may purchase artist-related books and other goods. There is an additional café, Seirensho Café, with a menu consisting of seasonal dishes local to the island.
