“MITSUME” is a gallery whose entrance is covered with a large glass door, and bathed in natural sunlight flowing in through the large opening.Taking the spatial characteristics of the hall as a starting point, the natural light pouring in defines an outline designed to be felt in relief.

Fresnel lenses made of vinyl chloride plates t0.3mm and φ40mm were slit in 4 directions and assembled 2918 lenses into a grid.In order to capture natural light in its most basic form as much as possible inside the room, excessive support and other materials were rejected in favor of a structure made of thin, light lenses bearing the vertical and horizontal loads.

With a shape design that takes into account the gallery size, line of flow, gallery space design, and angle of incidence of the light, the two flat triangles supporting each other separate the exterior and interior landscapes.

Depending on the angle of view, the opposite landscape is amplified several times by the lenses, the assembly of lenses appears as a glittering sphere and the light and the structure are seen as a variety of interwoven surfaces.

这种设计可以让进入这个空间的参观者任意选择自己所喜欢的视觉点。 滤镜装置捕捉单一光线,通过透射和折射,并将其具像化并且不断产生重叠。

This was designed so that viewers could search for their favorite points of view as they go around the room. The assembled lenses reproduce a single light, embodying it by multiplying it in its transmission and repeating its reflection.

光亮渲染了空间的实体墙面,在不同角度会使之显得闪耀。有时其作为介质对外部光线的转移,使室内空间达成一种“平和”的氛围。这样并没采用“直接 ”(Directly)介入,而是以一种细腻、温婉的手法进行光线处理。

The volume of the light rendered concrete inside the room is seen to shine in different ways depending on the position, giving the interior a peaceful aspect while providing a link with the shifting exterior light, and bringing in the external environment not directly but in a delicate, gentle fashion.

The subtle changes between the light outside and inside the room, manifested in an almost imperceptible way, appear before the viewers if only for an instant and reach their awareness, strengthening the perception of space.This installation does not only hold the phenomenon of natural light entering inside the room in place, but also recaptures its physicality by means of a concrete expression and attempts to arrange the void spaces of light and shadow.
