Public Space at Chiba Prefecture, Spiral

Public Space at Chiba Prefecture, Spiral

Tokyo, Japan | 2008

 

Concept design for public space and installation at a new urban centre near Tokyo (Chiba Prefecture) in Japan, curated by Tsutomu Okada, Chief curator, Wacoal Art Centre/Spiral.

The sensorial design plays with the notions of day and night. From an open space, the visitor moves to a warmly-lit glass structure with dense plantation on its roof; and from a gently sloping landscape, the visitor descends into a womb: a cave-like, contemplative space surrounded by water.  The project was executed in collaboration with Golak Khandual.
