AOYAMA 346Back to Projects list
Located in a commercial complex off Aoyama Dori, a busy shopping street in Tokyo, this garden has the feeling of a clearing in the woods. Although it incorporates soft natural elements such as walls woven from small branches, however, the garden’s underlying structure is composed from triangles, a geometric shape. The triangles are echoed in the buildings as well, linking interior and exterior. This dialogue between the shapes in the garden and the architecture projects a breath of nature onto the structure’s façade. The triangles also introduce a sense of depth into the space leading up to the entryway and differentiate the complex from its surroundings.
