Concept

Intuition comes on Mount Takasaki, in the Prefecture of Ōita, observation of small and agile Japanese macaque: to free the animal instinct, the playfulness hidden that every person carries in its depths through the design of a form, an area of report to sit, lie down, climb. Multiple sessions organic, morphological expression of the culture of beauty and transience. Three independent but complementary elements, three forms immutable be joined into one, unique circular island. The project, as a variable of a landscape, so absolves simultaneously in different ways to sit, to live sociability.
