shop in harajuku – former / casa / limited

in contrast to the majority of ando`s buildings, it is not a concrete box but a dark metallic structure, whose angular faces are folded like an origami. the layout, also differs from the rational geometry characteristic of ando and becomes a much freer composition , including rotated elements and aggressive angles. this almost window-less object does not face the street, in fact its only visual connection to the road is a thin horizontal slit.
