Final Wooden House

by Karen Day in Culture on 24 October 2008

Blurring the lines between what is a floor and what is a ceiling, the Jenga-like structure of Final Wooden House allows its occupiers to decide how to use the space according to their position. Comprised completely of wood, Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto wanted to express the versatility of lumber by creating one structure that embodies all of the typical functions normally carried out by wood in traditional architecture. The end result is a "bungalow" that redefines form and function of architectural space.
