This wooden house by Sou Fujimoto Architects (Japan) reminds me a bit of the famous skill game “Jenga” but is certainly a great concept where the room’s functionality is recreated every time you use it.
There are no separations of floor, wall, and ceiling here. A place that one thought was a floor becomes a chair, a ceiling, a wall from various positions. The floor levels are relative and spatiality is perceived differently according to one’s position. Here, people are distributed three-dimensionally in the space. This is a place like an amorphous landscape with a new experience of various senses of distances. Inhabitants discover, rather than being prescribed, various functionalities in these convolutions.
