A BIT OF COLOUR

 

Tired of natural/raw industrial chic, we went back to basics refreshed with bits of colour. New office interior under construction. Plywood stained in 3 colours; steel frames in 4 colours; glass panels in 2 colours.

LEARNING FROM EDO

A BELATED VISIT TO ONISHI HALL

Here again a highly skilled effort of understated presence in an existing situation: using sophisticated AND simple means to produce rich experiential effects to sensitively engage what is around. This is architecture to be experienced AND also works as a nice looking radical plan. We could feel this was a joyful period for Kazuyo Sejima. How we marvel at her lively vitality and openness in learning from what she had built AND what others had built, to try in further projects. Then of course, there’s this business of inside AND outside. Here not “blurred” but co-existing.

歩いても歩いても/ STILL WALKING

01

前回のsaatchiは既存オフィスの改装で、今回のsaatchiは新築のビルで0から。

02

前回から何かを引きついでもいて、前回とは違った歩き方ができるように。

03

床と天井は真新しいゆえ手を触れないこと。

04

今回新しく作ったのはほぼ家具→パーテーション→動きを整理し区切るもの。

05

小さいものの組み合わせでもってより大きな流れ・印象・景色・環境を作る。

06

各デパートメントをぐるっと歩き、避けたいときは避け混ざりたいときは混ざる。

07

迷っているようで迷ってはいない。

BEING AMONG THINGS #2

Yanaka/Sendagi area with narrow streets lined with potted plants, bicycles, and things outside small houses. Walking around, you feel like being among myriad things that give a sense of intimacy, smallness of scale, character, and gentle liveliness.
