Near the end of my visit, I took a day trip to the Takamatsu port and got to talking with fellow Benesse House guest Shoji Sadao, a New Yorker and a former executive director at the Isamu Noguchi Foundation. Before working with the famed Modernist sculptor, Sadao had studied architecture at Cornell with fellow students Peter Eisenman and Richard Meier, then served for many years as Buckminster Fuller’s private architect. He co-designed the geodesic U.S. Pavilion at Montreal’s Expo 67 with Bucky: “We thought we would get lots of new work from that one, but nothing,” said Sadao with a dry laugh as the Inland Sea churned by.
