Kunibiki Messe

This is a public complex comprising large and small international conference halls, a trade fair venue, and prefectural offices for all kinds of industrial support departments. Naturally, I was asked not only to integrate these varied functions into a rational spatial composition, but also to form new seeds for the serendipitous interactions of the diverse people using the facility and to create architecture that comprises places that evoke a cross-sectional network between different genres. The galleria and the atrium piercing the center of the facility could be described as non-functional spaces prepared as vessels to accommodate such unpredictable possibilities.
