Architecture as Forest –Texts, maquettes, photographs: an exhibition conceived, projected, documented and commented by Sou Fujimoto.
Around 120 maquettes, projects, objects, materials and films on the work of Fujimoto are exhibited to illustrate his vision of space.
Architecture as Forest
I believe that the Architecture of the future will be like a Forest. In the forest, the leaves, insects, seeds, and on an even larger scale, the tree trunks–a truly diverse group of things coexist and is in accord. It is this diversity that attracts me, a richness born from space, between order and chaos. If an Architecture as Forest is created, it will be a place of complexity, rich in diversity, much more than that which exists in the architecture of today´s cities. Its inhabitants will be an organic part of this diversity. The projects exhibited here are attempts at creating new notions of nature and man-made environments, like a three-dimensional forest, a geometric forest, an urban forest, etc.
Some of these projects were constructed, others merely concepts, and still others are being developed. They vary from small, or even microscopic architectures to colossal buildings and urban infrastructures 700 meters in height. The Forest is the origin and casts light over the future of Architecture.
