Inujima Life Garden was realized through a collaboration between architect Kazuyo Sejima, who has been involved with the Inujima Art House Project open to the public since 2010, and Akaruiheya, which handled landscaping for the Inujima Art House Project (S Art House, A Art House, I Art House). The staff of Akaruiheya moved to the island of Inujima, and has been engaging with a wide range of people while working to create the botanical garden. The plan is to generate a space where visitors can connect to the island in new ways, one that takes shape over the long term through cooperation with island residents and visitors alike.
