An abandoned school was transformed into an architectural playground at the Kyoto Art Center in Japan. Six teams of architects from Europe and Japan produced ephemeral kid-friendly installations on view from August 25th to September 1st, 2017.
Japanese firm, dot architects, created "Machiya" Slider Roof, an installation inspired by traditional Japanese architecture roofs.
Copenhagen based architect, Hiroshi Kato, used vinyl threads to weave a permeable ceiling. His installation unified the courtyard space and the projects together.
French firm, Martinez Barat Lafore Architectes, designed "Folie, Welcoming roof", a set of shading structures producing changing geometrical patterns on the ground.
Yo Shimada, from Tato Architects, linked the entrances of the two buildings flanking the courtyard through a long corridor made of agricultural fabric.
In "A Float of Immaterial Pleasure", German Architect Ludwig Heimbach stitched a series of plywood and fabric panel to create a climbing structure offering seating, intimate spaces, and balconies.
Sven Pfeiffer created "Risky Playground", a bouldering pavilion composed of climbing wall in concavely punched plywood.
