house vision

House Vision exhibition was held at the bay area of Tokyo, directed by Kenya Hara with many famous architect like Kengo Kuma, Toyo Ito, Shigeru Ban and more. Unique approach of this event is a collaboration with house builders and manufacturers that enables the pavilions realistic and would make their future portfolio visionary.


The most impressive pavilion for me was the Japanese Suki-ya and Cha-sitsu in its garden. The concept was by an artist Hiroshi Sugimoto who is famous especially for his works of photograph.


The fence around the garden was made with bamboos, and we noticed they were hundreds of brooms when we looked closer.


Cha-sitsu, a tea house, in the garden looked like unfinished, however we can enjoy its simple structure and natural materials.


Inside of Cha-sitsu is usually dark and enables tea ceremony concentrated, but not in this case. We can feel the air and sunlight from outside, and I thought this could be a modern interpretation of Cha or suggesting a new way of meditation.


On the other hand, Suki-ya which living room is in was super simple modern and yet somehow Japanese.
