Outline

despite the fact of being a showroom for a traditional industry , leather tanning, the exterior appearance of the building is turned into a futuristic shape that looks like a spaceship. but this shape was actually inspired by the Japanese traditional origami. Nearly 3000 leather items were placed inside an enormous ark, made like an origami. This ark is sailing to the future, suggesting a metaphor and a poetic expression of the client’s hope that leather material used by our civilization since the ancient times will continue to be commonly used in the future.
