Akihisa Hirata: Tangling

7 July 2012
I have been working for the exhibition Akihisa Hirata: Tangling (18 September – 17 November 2012) which will be opened during London Design Festival.
It is his first ever solo show abroad, and he will exhibit an immersive 1:1 scale installation – a contorted loop – to distil his architecture’s essence into a large-scale experiential structure. Over a hundred study models and conceptual sketches will be presented on and within the structure, as well as an interview with the architect and intimate films of his projects, illustrating Hirata’s view of architecture and ecology, form and function, as a complex, interwoven ‘tangle’.
