As announced at this blog in August, the award winning piece of urban furniture designed by co+labo's Graduate Akitaka Suzuki and our final year Masters student Daisuke Kobayashi, was built in Minato Mirai, at the prestigious location in front of the Kenzo Tange's Yokohama Museum.
Before the opening, their PhD sempai, Vedrana Ikalovic has captured the puzzling beauty of urban table (left) which both reflects, and invites reflections of the passes by. The visits of other co+labo members and more photos of a truly photogenic and excitingly interactive installation started coming in.
Aki-san and Daisuke-san has summarised their experience: "After the competition, due to the (both expected and unexpected) limitation of tools, materials and budget, we had to modify our scheme several times.
good opportunities to rethink the essence of what we were trying to achieve and refine the final scheme in a more effective way.
Well done, Aki-san, Daisuke-san!
