KOSHIRAKURA TEMPORARY ROOF STRUCTURE
Koshirakura Landscape Workshop, Japan, 2002
In a close relationship with the community and landscape, our team constructed a TEMPORARY ROOF STRUCTURE to house 200 people. We used locally available materials, ‘surplus’ timber – off-cuts from the timber industry, discarded tree trunks and locally made rice-straw rope for the construction. The structure was designed for the annual celebration of the MOMIJI MATSURY (Maple Tree Festival).
