Fu House (Residential House) by KATSUFUMI KUBOTA
2017 - 2018, Golden A' Architecture, Building and Structure Design Award Winner
Shunan City,Yamaguchi is one of a series of industrial zones situated around the Seto Inland Sea,where the coastline bristles with industrial complexes.Having been raised in the area,the glaring metal tanks and the fierce fire tearing through the dark night are familiar sights for me.It is a surreal and abstract world,which gives us a glimpse of the future glimmering with hope for the coming of a new era.
Light and shadow are restlessly ambiguous and abstract as are wind and water.Three pieces of white slab,each folded into an L sharp,are inserted three dimensionally into this ever changing environment.Spaces created between the intersections function as a catalyst nature and human emotions,whilst also controlling nature’s dynamism with their L shape fold.Light seeps in and wind passes through the spaces between the slabs.
