Venue: Mt.Takagari, Nagano
Organized by Japan Alps Art Festival 2017
The white walls of the building interior are identical to exterior walls typical of Japanese architecture. Visitors enter the building without giving attention to its layout or structure, or to the outer wall’s extension inside. In the white space, they suddenly become aware of a connection between the space furnishings and the huge peaks of the Japan Alps. Then, the scenery, the furniture, the person’s physicality, although each is systemically different, gently merge with the landscape and the soft curves of the walls.
