SORI YANAGI DESIGN MUSEUM

YOJU as Architects

Location: Tokyo Architects: You Jin, Bo Feng Project Time: Dec.9.2010 Competition


Imbedded within Japanese culture is the concept of the "no-touch? No buildings in Tokyo touch each other, as code requires the slimmest slice (one meter) of space between objects in the built environment. This project takes this concept and cuts it into the architecture itself creating an in between within.The cut or slice was the organizing gesture of this project, at once violent and definitive.


The Volume remains cubic while the building behind undulates back and forth, meeting flush at the temporary exhibition level and then peeling back in. At first glance, the skin looks relentlessly cellular but it is also made up with a secondary texture of tiny slices that scale, fold and open at different programmatic locations. The scaling effect challenges the ides of texture as something of this size becomes an architectural object.
