Tokyo Tower Top Deck observatory by KAZ Shirane

The idea of this ambiguous space is based on the common ground between interior design and art as a permanent installation. The project was launched as a full-scale reconstruction project of Tokyo Tower; It has been transformed the interior space of its circular observation deck, located at the height of 250 meters, into a mirror of the city, breathing new life into it as a new interior design by covering the whole space with mirrors. The design of the space changes with every moment by the movement of the visitors and the scenery of Tokyo.

Light Origami Art Installation by KAZ Shirane

Light Origami Art Installation
Light Origami is an unique interactive art installation. Viewers are invited to explore the nature of reality by entering a giant 3D kaleidoscope. The domed structure is bathed in light and is constructed using over 330 mirror panels. Changing spectrums of light are projected within the space, and when mirrored against the mirror panels, the effect is like being inside a kaleidoscope. The interior space is spread eternal without edge of space. Light Origami creates a multidimensional experience that explores the relationship between the participant and space, between reflection and light.

Wink Space by KAZ Shirane

This ephemeral architecture is the common ground between architecture and art. This unique work, exhibited at the Kobe Biennial 2013 in Japan, has been designed to please the eye and meet easy-assembly requirements, zipping any of it's components to the next one making a perfect art piece that changes as you walk inside of it. The relationship between the structure itself and the visitors is quite close, since anyone can open or close any of its parts as if it was a window. The intention of this work is to show anyone how architecture can be also, lightweight and mobile.
