The design is based on the concept that people live not just in indoors, but in the outdoor realm, too. Therefore, the ­architects did not understand the home just as a limited space; they developed their idea along the lines of a village structure, with individual “buildings”, open areas and stairways. Indoors and outdoors, the house and the ­garden, form a spatial continuum. This interpretation is both timeless and futuristic. It also reflects the Japanese tradition of the dwelling, in which one seeks to attain a harmony between natural and man-made things.

A home for two plus a dog. The house itself is comprised of three boxes of progressive size nested inside one another. The first box creates a covered, semi-indoor garden. The second one encloses a limited space inside the covered outdoor space. The third box creates a smaller interior space. Residents build their life inside this gradation of domain.

Life in this house resembles to living among the clouds. A distinct boundary is nowhere to be found.

The light passes through the openings in vertical and horizontal planes, which later will be covered by the tree’s foliage  that will give the space a new type of light. A filtered light.

Brazilian artist Regina Silveira creates incredible illusions that play with our senses and messes with our minds. In Lodz, Polland, she created an installation called Abyssal (Depth) where she incorporated the gallery’s architecture, particularly its windows, to show a never-ending abyss one could actually walk on.

Tue Greenfort’s project for “sculptur projekte münster 07”, Diffuse Einträge, singles out the water quality of the lake Aasee in Münster as a central theme. The Aasee in Münster and its surrounding park landscape plays an important role for the urban structure of the city, and its identity as a green and pleasant organised space. At the same time swimming in the lake is forbidden, because a high population of blue-green algae grow in the lake, which produce a poisonous substance in the water. Due to a highly intensified and industrialized agricultural production around the city of Münster, especially in subventionnized meat production, a high concentration of phosphates ends up in the river. This provides ideal growth conditions for the blue-green algea. In Münster, a scientific project has been established to examine the pollution of the lake so that the recreational use and aesthetic enjoyment of the lake can be maintained. The scientists found a method to reduce the flowering of the algae by adding a substance called Iron (III) - Chloride into the water. The substance bounds the phosphates chemically through the process of neutralisation. The “solution” thus, is a purely cosmetic one. It only prevents the eutrophication as long as Iron (III) - Chloride is added to the river.

The project consists of three 1100 litre standard ‘Eurobins’ (the familiar street refuse containers otherwise known as wheelie bins) whose sides had been cut away and replaced with windows of clear polycarbonate, thus making them visibly incorrect and their contents visible to everyone. It created a kind of grand though rudimentary behavioural experiment in which citizens generated a transparent reflection on consumption, disposability and recent municipal waste incentives, at the point where personal assets were thrown ‘away’. Importantly, although the bins were encountered within close proximity to a major art event, they were not visibly “framed” as art works. No plinth, no label and no sign indicated that they were anything other than functional bins, plausibly located where one was leaving the event, perhaps ready to shed unwanted detritus.
