This public park in front of Tenri station in Nara is designed by Nendo ( related page is here ). Yes, they design not only products but architecture. As its name CoFuFun suggests, their focused theme for the park is Kofun, ancient tombs, which dotted around the area. Its website is also designed by Nendo, and it's a lot of fun ( jump to CoFuFun HP here ).

The Kofun shape is simplified by concentric circles, and the contoure lines become steps or bench seating which make people accessible.

They look as if giant playing blocks are configurated, and I sometimes loose the sense of human scale.

Many of them are playing facilities for kids, but even adults can enjoy if you have a playful mind.

A cafe is also designed as a part of the circles. Very playful but clever idea for everybody.
