KENGO KUMA Oribe Tea House Pavilion, Japan 2005
A temporary, mobile tea room. Corrugated plastic boards 5mm thick are arrayed at 65mm intervals and fixed together using banding bands. Once the bands are unfastened, the tea room returns to an assembly of cheap elements, making it easy to move. The entire form resembles an irregularly-shaped cocoon, and is an homage to Furuta Oribe’s deformed tea ceremony bowl.
