“Metamorphosis in the Forest“ consists of “Gradation in the Forest” and “Three Cubes in the Forest”. The theme of this project is that spaces penetrates deeply into the forest. “Gradation in the Forest“ is made as a collection of small spaces. So, the house might melt into the environment of the woods. Playground equipment for children, public furniture, art objects, meditation rooms, small rest spaces, waiting rooms. “Three Cubes in the Forest“ are the micro?architectures with the various characteristics and functions. Three Cubes can be easily transported by a truck and can be installed.

I am an architect, an artist, a designer and a poet. The spaces designed by me include many implications by poetic sensitivity. I would like to show everybody the new vision of the world clearly and sensuously. Human activity takes place on the very thin surface of a large sphere. I am working on the concept of designing the skin of the Earth. 1997, Architecture(school of engineering), Master, the University of Tokyo, JAPAN. 2005-, KOTOAKI ASANO Architect & Associates, JAPAN. 2015, "KOBE Biennale 2015", JAPAN. 2017, "KAMEYAMA Triennale 2017", JAPAN. 2019, "NAKANOJO Biennale 2019", JAPAN.
