Playground equipment for children, public furniture, art objects, meditation rooms, arbors, small rest spaces, waiting rooms, chairs with roofs. Three cubes are the micro?architectures with the various characteristics and functions. Three cubes can be easily transported by a truck and can be installed, because of the size and the shape. Three cubes with the rich spatial implication can give the new public extensity to each place and can activate urban spaces. In terms of the size, the installation (the inclination), seat surfaces, windows etc., each cube is designed characteristically.

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.
