japanese architect kengo kuma will be installing a temporary installation on the grounds of jardin des tuileries in paris from october 10th to the 1st november. presented for FIAC — an artistic program which sees the creation of both gallery-based and public creative projects — the pavilion ‘yure’ is kuma’s poetic response of small nomadic houses where the larch timber structure encompasses an ambition to merge art and architecture.

the immersive pavilion will be based in the grounds of jardin des tuileries




the timber, crafted structure is reminiscent of kengo kuma’s signature style of merging japanese culture; using traditional wood craft and natural materials to develop contemporary forms. once the scheme is erected, visitors will be able to meander through and up the pavilion and view the stacked and patterns created by assembly of the structure.

‘yure, is a japanese expression for a nomadic shelter slowly moving in the wind. it undulates like trees that gently swing slowly their branches and leaves .it consists of identical wooden pieces stacked, twisted and assembled creating a poetic dynamic volume. yure offers an organic geometry by a geometric composition of elements of wood’ kengo kuma
