sou fujimoto: futurospektive architecture bielefeld, westphalia, germany on now through september 2nd 2012 the kunsthalle bielefeld organization is currently holding an exhibition on sou fujimoto‘s work titled ‘futurospektive architecture’ at the kunsthalle scultpure park in bielefeld, germany. around 120 models, projects, objects and materials of fujimoto’s past work are being displayed to illustrate his vision of space: it is not understood as the central part of a structure but rather exists as a user-defined element. prospective projects and future ideas are also presented, having been recently built or on the brink of construction.

the ability to experience his spatial theory at full-scale makes this a unique collection to visit. standing as the focal point of the exhibit is his latest work, the ‘final wooden house’. large timber beams of varying lengths are stacked upon each other reminiscent of a savant child’s block sculpture at human size. although it looks like a simple geometric cube, the inside reveals a completely three-dimensional landscape of protruding and receding members, the functions of which are determined by the individual’s needs. what may act as a table for one could be the chair or shelf for another in this entirely flexible installation. more information can be found for ‘the final wooden box‘ at designboom.
