Tha designed a monument for the entrance of Seibu Ikebukuro Flagship Store, called “Hikari No Tokei” (Clock of Light). The monument features 4 LED surfaces on which the current time is expressed in motion typography, changing proportions at every second. At every hour, the monument features time-announcement of synchronized music and motion.
The music is produced by Yukihiro Takahashi.
The New Style Mobile Office or the “Pop Up” is a 94 x 275 x 200 cm installation that is entirely made of cardboard and tape. It is designed by Liddy Scheffknecht and Armin B. Wagner.
The idea of this architecture project “Rainbow Church” dates back to when I wan in early 20s.
I visited the Chepelle du Rosaire, which Henri Matisse, a French painter, created in his last years, located in Vence, a commune located near Nice, France. I was engrossed in the beauty of the light that the chapel created.
I experienced a space filled with the light of Matisse: Being bathed in the sunlight of the Provence, the stained glass with Metisse’s vibrant colors suffused the room with full of colors.
Since then, I had been dreaming of designing an architecture where people can feel the light with all senses.
A part of this dreaming architecture project will be realized as a concept plan at the exhibition held at MUSEUM. beyondmuseum in Seoul from May, 2010. The exhibition is planned to last until the end of June.
Approximately 8-meter-high stained glass made with 500 crystal prisms will be filling the space with rainbow colors as the light shines on it.
