RIBBONs / Open Air Theater in Taichung city, Taiwan by Makoto Sei Watanabe

The brief for this design was a canopy, backstage rooms, and other new facilities for an existing outdoor theater in a Taichung (Taiwan) city park.In 2005, I did the spatial design for an exhibition of contemporary Japanese art in the Austrian city of Graz. Entitled RIBBON, that project featured a ribbon weaving through space, rising and falling, at places becoming the wall of a booth and at places becoming a canopy to guide the visitors. The Graz ribbon figured in the preliminary discussions for this project, so the design concept was approached from that direction.
