Fashion Museum in Omotesando Street - Tokyo, 2010
Collaboration with Hizume Hirohumi, Kano Hiroyuki, Tanaka Ayaka
Fashion is different from paintings or technology, which have developed gradually.  Some fashions remain popular for long periods of time.  Others, having been forgotten, suddenly reemerge and become trends. Fashion trends don’t just evolve through time.  The revival of trends or mixing of trends often occurs as well. In the City like Tokyo, fashions come to be popular based on age groups and hobbies rather than the era itself. The fashion museum is proposed as a place where visitors will discover clothes they want to wear in the city rather than simply showing them clothes from past eras.
Every floor is designed around many ages’ fashions, gradually changing from the ground floor up. Visitors will encounter a variety of spaces and exhibits as U-shaped tubes representing each age rise upwards, warped and twisted. The fact that the fashions from each era are adjacent to one another represents the way fashion currently exists in the city like Tokyo. Although each floor has fashioned from each age and different themes, visits can be exhibits themselves, representing real, current fashion.
Every U-shaped tube is transformed by the handling of twisting, bending, and widening for making the relationships with other tubes. So there are new openings which are created by the gap of transforming and combination using a different type of Tubes. And it makes various degrees of openness toward the around the fashion museum depending on the type of Tubes
