Public space and private space are usually connected seamlessly. However, most of buildings make this relation separated clearly by such as doors or gloomy corridors. I would like to change this situation. I made all corridors are outside.

The land of Type 1 is faced with the road all surface. There is a wider width of land in Tyoe2. The land of Type 3 has a narrow entrance so that it has a lot of private space.
"Hidden Colors" in October, 2011
in Tokyo University of the Arts
Shruberry in the front of the canteen,
The season was autumn. Looking up the sky, I saw colorful leafs and blue sky. Looking down the ground, I saw dark ground wet by rain. I made some bowls on the ground in order to reflect the beautiful sky and the bright color of leafs on the ground. The bowl was made by three triangle miroors. You can see a lot of moments of the sky as you move around there, like the movement of tree because of wind or just the refrects of the sunlight.
