Oshizushihako 押し寿司箱, literally “pressed sushi box” are rectangular molds filled with rice, fish, vegetables, and other condiments to prepare pressed sushi (oshizushi 押し寿司 or hako-sushi 箱寿司 ), a method perfected in Osaka and Japan’s Kansai region in the early 18th century. Using a traditional hako, intended to serve 1-2 people as a model to construct a sushi box press at three times the scale, we created one large pressed sushi which serves 18-20 people. We invited a group of friends, architects, and artists to partake in the making, sharing, and eating of our large-scale hako-sushi.
