Fujimoto Sou: House NA

tokyo-based practice sou fujimoto architects has completed 'house NA', a single family dwelling within a
residential district in tokyo, japan. similar in form to a stacked pile of boxes the internal areas generated by
the exterior appearance are set at different elevations. the small rooms within each platform are connected
by ladder stairs allowing a free movement through the home's loosely defined program.

the rectangular windows of varied proportions and sizes frame views of adjacent structures while the elimination
of solid interior walls encourage unobstructed sight lines to higher and lower spaces. at night, curtains become
temporary partitions for privacy and separation.

a 1-5 model of the project is currently on display at MOT - museum of contemporary art tokyo in tokyo, japan,
as part of the exhibition 'architectural environments for tomorrow - new spatial practices in architecture and art'.
curated by yuko hasegawa (MOT tokyo chief curator) together with SANAA architects (kazuyo sejima + ryue nishizawa),
the exhibition features works of 23 architects and artists from 12 countries (tentative) that introduce their experiments
and achievements through models, drawings, images, sculpture, photographs and mixed-media installations.
