Friday, February 12th, 2016

Article source: Fumihiko Sano

This work was made for the exhibition, “Measuring: This much, That much, How much?” held at 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT from February 20th to May 30th, 2015.

I designed this in collaboration with MUJI, using their first furniture product, the steel shelving unit.

First, I began the project by discussing the importance of this steel shelving unit with the designers at MUJI to study what this product meant for them.

K8 in Kyoto, Japan by Florian Busch Architects

Sunday, January 31st, 2016

Article source: Florian Busch Architects

Until some time ago, there were, we are told, 12 bars spread over three 2-storey houses on this 50 m2 plot on Kiyamachidori, adjacent to one of Kyoto’s most intricate network of night alleys, Pontocho, where a vibrant mixture of bars, brothels, inns, dwellings, shops have for centuries created an urban atmosphere of essential Kyoto nightlife. With an unobtrusive high-end restaurant next to a (visually less subtle) cheap yakitori, with a hidden gem of a ryokan at the end of the narrowest of side-alleys across an enigmatic place commanding courage to enter, any walk here leads to eventual surprises.

Floating house in Ogasa, JAPAN by Shuhei Goto Architects

Sunday, January 24th, 2016

Article source: Shuhei Goto Architects 

A concept of this house is a “new openness” in densely built-up residential areas. The site is surrounded by the houses of neighbors, so the main theme of design is to form “a space excellent in privacy” and “an open space with brightness”.A 360 degree opening has been realized by using a steel frame between the wooden first and second floor. A living room is surrounded by the sky on every side, and a resident doesn’t have to care about neighbors. This house can bring him/her a bright and healthful life.
