Adaptable hanger system by Schemata Architects and Keisuke Hatakenaka Architects Studio, Tokyo – JapanSeptember 3rd, 2016
The project is a new flagship retail building located in Tokyo’s Aoyama shopping district, just off Omotesando Street. The design is a diagrammatic response to strict local codes, the immediate surrounding context (bordered by world-renowned architecture and a quiet residential neighborhood), and the desire to represent the material craft that is inherent in the tradition of Japanese construction. The building is designed to meet regulated energy efficiency standards and use local/regional materials.
As part of their ongoing series, Diesel Denim Gallery in Aoyama, Tokyo is currently presenting ‘Rolls’, an installation by Chikara Ohno from the japanese design studio Sinato. ‘Rolls’ consists of a single length of aluminum sheet thread throughout the space, forming large rolls on the ground at intervals.
