Outline

The Shorinji temple was founded 1615 and has been one of the most important temples in Edo. The old structures were burnt down in the world war two. This is the project to re-establish the dignity and history of the temple after long years after the war. The structure is timber based on the traditional joinery yet rationalized and optimized with the latest structural analysis. The timeless design is aiming to stand at least 400 years from now.
