Shingo Masuda + Katsuhisa Otsubo “Is It Truly Necessary? “
This event has ended.
*Gallery Ma is temporarily closed from Mar. 3 to Mar. 19.
Shingo Masuda and Katsuhisa Otsubo are a young architect duo creating highly unique work in Japan. After making a start to their career by designing a solitary fence for a house, the two captured the attention of the architecture community with their highly praised “Boundary Window,” which is one of their most well-known early projects, and “Living Pool,” which won them the 32nd Yoshioka Prize. Through their work, they have demonstrated an ability to present bold solutions by focusing on specific parts of a site that can make the greatest impact on a place, such as the boundaries, windows, structure, and foundations. This exhibition will present site models and mockups to illustrate the design process behind their early and recent work. Come see the fruits of their continued explorations and learn about how they are able to identify and realize the truly essential things that need to be designed for the contexts of their projects.
