Making Space

PRESENTED ON DEC 04, 2013
IN TOKYO @ VOL 109

Architect Kazuhiro Yajima discusses the relationship between three key constructive elements: roofs, walls, and the floor. Here he focuses on the roof element, specifically the temporary roof we often call the umbrella. Kazuhiro tells a story of a young couple in Europe he saw kissing under an umbrella and how it inspired him to build a tool that allows its user to bring private activity to public spaces. (in Japanese with English subtitles)
