Beam

japanese architects ryuji nakamura & associates has sent us images of his most recent design for the exhibition 
space of 'feel and think: a new era of tokyo fashion', a show highlighting ten young emerging designers 
based in tokyo, japan. currently on display until 25 december 2011 at the tokyo opera city art gallery,
the design utilizes a floating steel framework placed at the viewer's eye level to create 
the illusion of individual rooms without the presence of full partition walls. 

completely supported by the pre-existing walls of the exhibition room, the beams are finished in
the same white paint to read as an extension of the overall space. the placement of the frame creates
three distinct areas within the vertical volume: under the beam, through the beam, and over the beam.
visitors are made conscious of the different elements which are often overlooked. 

devoid of bounding partitions, circulation of the exhibition room is liberated to a free and open form.
the design encourages individual visitors to determine their own route by simply passing under a beam.
