ryo yamada: infinite landscape

japanese architect ryo yamada has created ‘infinite landscape’, an architectural installation in the center of a lake at the museum of contemporary art in sapporo, japan. a narrow path leads visitors from land over the water towards a box modestly clad with oriented strand board, OSB. upon entering the enclosed structure, the internal walls and roof are black, blocking the passage of light and indirectly, a sense of direction or time.

a thin horizontal void between the bottom of the wooden partitions and floor plate introduces a green glowing light. permeating through the endless dark interior, this reflection of sunlight through the rippling water represents the pure color of the water. visitors become lost within the moment and connect with the most essential element of our world.
