Where There is Only Muck, Tadao Ando Sees a Floating Forest
Ando, quoted by Sophie Knight in the Asahi Shinbun, explains his vision:
"'Umi-no-Mori (Sea Forest) will become a symbol of our recycling-oriented society through which Japan, a country that has a tradition of living hand-in-hand with nature, can make an appeal to the world about the importance of living in harmony with the environment,' says Ando."
Ando is seeking volunteers and donations to make his project come to life.
