Tsumiki Pavilion

In collaboration with Ryuichi Sakamoto’s forest conservation organization More Trees, architect Kengo Kuma has designed a set of triangular-shaped modular pieces. called ‘Tsumiki’ — a name that means ‘wooden blocks’ in Japanese — the individual components can be stacked and assembled in a variety of ways, allowing the user to create original sculptures.

During tokyo design week 2015, Kengo Kuma used this same concept to design the Tsumiki pavilion — a temporary structure erected in tokyo’s midtown park.

In addition to the pyramidal installation, individual pieces were arranged in a semi-circle, varying in scale from large to small. the ‘Tsumiki’ elements are made from Japanese cedar, and manufactured using wood certified by the forest stewardship council.
