This project is part of Ghali Bouayad's doctoral investigations and is waiting for its client / real estate developer.
Winning submission for the Ginza Grand Prix competition awarded the jury prize from the Architectural Institute of Japan.
The project raised a very important question : what is actually being three-dimensional ? The example of my reinterpretation of Koushi pattern is demonstrating the following : From far, it looks completely flat bi-dimensional grid, and many people will call it bi-dimensional wall/surface. However, the more we approach it, by changing distance or point of view angle, and the fact that people move around it, the geometry starts to change and shift from bi-dimensional to3dimensional units, creating a non physical kinetic effect, and becomes even richer in term of quality affect.
The generated geometry is self-supported structurally and constructed through discrete wood chunks.
