Majima Clinic / D.I.G Architects; The first thing I thought when I saw this was "origami", and sure enough that was the driving concept. Mission accomplished, D.I.G
Reinterpretation of typical elements of wooden architecture, folded space. We tried to reinterpret the traditional appearance of wooden architecture, pitched roof and big canopy, under the concept of “folding” referred to “ORIGAMI”- a traditional Japanese paper work.
The roof, wall and canopy- the outer elements of architecture- are integrated and considered as a sheet of paper, split off and folded to each direction like “ORIGAMI”. The gesture of “ORIGAMI” brings the gaps and openings to the space underneath, generates the light, flow lines and the functions. The folded skin obscures the architectural articulations and boundaries, integrates the separated functions into one volume.
