Article source: MoNo

This art work was dedicated to the people who had passed away in several disasters in this year 2011. Especially in Japan, the massive earthquake hit this country land with the huge tsunami so much that considerable damage and profound sorrow came to us. MoNo had the opportunity to join the illumination event “KusatsuMachiakariYumeakariHanaakari – on autumnal Kusatsu road with sensory gratification”, which got over 30 thousands visitors. So MoNo could open our work as one of programs of “Akari Art Exhibition” which were held in some historic shrines and temples.

This little place of worship is planned in a room in a building which is in an area that is currently under development. In the bible, you can find lots about the contrast of darkness and light.

Ordinary House in Shiga, Japan by FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Article source: FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects

This is a house which is built in new residential area. The area has no special character and most of the houses are built by house builders. When I face to a situation like this, whether I like it or not, I am made to think about it. My question is… “Do most of people want to have nothing special, just an ordinary house in an ordinary land? My answer is in this house. As an architect this is my solution to a social situation like this. Externally the house appears as a simple volume with prefabricated windows.
