Finding yourself asleep when you thought you were reading a book.
Doesn’t everyone have had experienced this before. This was a project to create a guest house in a room of a small building in front of Ikebukuro Station. When thinking about sleeping, we tend to imagine squashy beds and fluffy pillows, but here we focused on the time before and until falling asleep. It is bothersome when people beside you talk loudly when you are sleeping, but then it feels uncomfortable to tell visitors to be quiet.
Problem Statement and Project Solution
So, we thought of a quiet environment where people are encouraged to care about each other in a natural manner. In libraries, consciousness towards quiet environment has been built up unconsciously. Importing this feature, we proposed a library space where people can stay overnight.
Creation Process & Result
We regularly think of what are the newness of tangible and intangible. Although here, a new known scene was created by marrying books and beds, the two elements that everyone knows. A scene where someone getting in a room inside bookshelves with a book on their hands, and a scene that people living deep inside the bookshelves. All these could be seen as new scenery which is an extension to actions in regular lives.
New things might not be what we don’t know, but something we already know. The moment when nothing became a thing. We continue to have interest in ways of thinking that let us encounter to such moments. This project thema: Books lull you to sleep.
How does the project reflect the exhibition theme ‘Cultural Bay Area • Humanistic Design’ ？
Scatterings tossed together.
It’s been the thought all along.
A place where the outer is conjoined with the inner.
Completeness is in its incompletion.
The relationship exists or not.
Make a place that fits no preconception,
that sets up a contradictory state of affairs.
The star in itself hasn’t meaning or function in the sky;
connected we see a “constellation”, and new meaning comes into being.
The shape of every single tree differs from the next;
We say “nature” and draw them together, and behold a gorgeous vista.
No one knew, what was affected by, or gave thought to,
What was tossed into disorder, after it's intertwined,
and suddenly a new world begins , and from time to time, inventions come up.
After accepting many projects,
we can’t help finding that they all come down to questions of society.
Change values. Bring forth value.
That’s been the thought for a long time.
