SOU FUJIMOTO INSTALLATION IN PARIS

0

Marking his first work in Paris, japanese architect Sou Fujimoto has created a monumental installation in Paris – Jardins des Tuileries, composed of suspended metal cubes and plants, for the FIAC art fair.
Commissioned by Parisian art gallery Philippe Gravier, the Many Small Cubes installation features stacked boxes – some filled with plants and small trees – attached one to another by only an edge or a corner, seemingly hover in mid-air as they rise above the landscape, forming a visually light and aerial architectural piece.

“The floating masses of Many Small Cubes create a new experience of space, a rhythm of flickering shadows and lights, as being under the trees.” said Fujimoto.

“The architecture forms one unified element whose balance and stability are carefully designed: the position of each cube and each tree participates to the overall stability, yet reaching a random-like feeling, bringing the whole architecture closer to nature.”
