“Body LandSpace” @ ORLEANS
BODY LANDSPACES
FRANCE

I have been invited to the 7th edition of ‘’ARCHILAB 2006 JAPON’’ as Japanese Young architect.
We planed Japanese garden with opposing thinking method like,
“FRENCH style” or “JAPANESE style”
“Feeling with the EYES” or “Feeling with the BODY”
“MOVEMENT” and “ASPECT”

We integrated scattering elements to one space with the white sand surfaceand the bamboo tress surface covering this garden,
and put undulate sheets of mirror groups on the white sand following a checkerboard pattern.
The movements of the visitors transform the aspect of the mirrors. Seen from far away, the mirrors resemble solid objects
like the big rocks of the Japanese garden. From mid-distance, they look like flat surfaces on the ground.
Close up, they are like pixels of images mapping the existing site.
This Landscape can be felt by the BODY like Space = BODY LANDSPACE.
