flynn talbot: light work

horizon: frankfurt, germany 2010
horizon was selected for the 2010 luminale festival...at it’s biggest scale at 6m wide and 3.5 high. it was custom built to fit the rear wall of the raum für kultur space. i am interested in the connection between light and architecture.

here the public was invited to interact via their mobile device or iphone from either inside the gallery or from the street when the gallery was closed.

horizon has always been about being able to interact and effect the surrounding architectural space. this idea was the most effective here due to the full height glazing of the gallery. it was visible in the centre of frankfurt from up to 500m away.

many thanks to flynn talbot for providing the photos for this post!

atelier tekuto: concrete residence - tokyo

(the residence) is situated in the middle of tokyo, on a tiny 45.61 m2 of plot of land. the width of front road restricted the size of construction machinery. the conditions made it extremely difficult to build the residence. the client was a married couple in their thirties, and their simple request was the use of concrete for every part of the house including floor, wall, tables etc.

architect: atelier tekuto
location: tokyo, japan
photographs: makoto yoshida
