Kyoto University Hospital / Clinical Research Center for Medical Equipment Development in Japan by emmanuelle moureaux architecture + design

Second and third floor spaces of the Clinical Research Center for Medical Equipment Development (CRCMeD) at Kyoto University Hospital. These two floors, occupied by Canon Inc. and Kyoto University, will become the future site for projects developed in collaboration between people lending their expertise to research initiatives and a great number of supporters. The thoughts of each of these people working in various fields will come together in this space, bringing together a convergence of knowledge and skills that will create new possibilities. The design expresses the invisible “threads” that connect each of these different thoughts to one another, just like how threads are spun together to create a strong, supple fabric. Specifically, ito (Japanese for “thread”) is used as a motif that would bridge the second and third floors of this research center, designing a space that came together in a single, massive flow. Just like how new possibilities emerge out of encounters between people, a spectrum of different colors appear at the junctions between threads, creating chromatic combinations that resemble landscapes: field green, sky blue, light cherry pink, snow white, dusky orange, and white horizons.
