Architecture: GC Prostho Museum Research Center by Kengo Kuma & Associates

Posted by the editors on Monday, 16 January 2012

Architecture: GC Prostho Museum Research Center by Kengo Kuma & Associates: “..This is architecture that originates from the system of Cidori, an old Japanese toy. Cidori is an assembly of wood sticks with joints having unique shape, which can be extended merely by twisting the sticks, without any nails or metal fittings. The tradition of this toy has been passed on in Hida Takayama, a small town in a mountain, where many skilled craftsmen still exist..”  Intricate, expressive, impressive..
