100 times world in a room
27 March - 11 April, 2021
Spring 2020. Under the unprecedented situation with global COVID-19, we at Hideyuki Nakayama Laboratory, Department of Architecture, Graduate School of Fine Arts, Tokyo University of the Arts were no exceptions but started the year with no time for face-to-face seminars or field surveys for research. This is a year-long production record of three first-year master's students from different schools.
When we had to spend most of our time in a small room where we lived alone, we thought about the architectural imagination that begins there. If we think of architecture as a line drawn through a world that already exists, then there is a wide variety of worlds in this small room. Wouldn’t there be? When I opened the refrigerator, the eggs and ice in there looked like minuscule structures of endless fascination!
Using the familiar "scale," I see myself as 1/100th the size. Welcome to the small and big world by observing the world enlarged 100 times and the architecture as lines added to it.
