Cubism: Question cube by Ken Yokogawa.

Photo credits: Japan Architects.

Chain mail, an essentially Medieval form of armour, is the inspiration behind this installation at the Nihon University of Science and Technology in Tokyo.

Professor Ken Yokogawa assisted by Professor Jun Sato and students, constructed the installation from 7000, 60mm wooden cubes and 36,000 screw-in hooks. He has named the structure an “inverted question cube”.

The development was a reiterative process resulting in an organic structure that appears to flow in the spatial sense.

Showing until 14th May 2013.

Gratitude to Spoon and Tamago.
