Akihisa Hirata, architect of the new Bloomberg Pavilion “wondered what would happen if the walls were to keep growing upwards and present an uneven surface like ‘pleats’.” He dug into his imagination to create a white rectangular structure with a plethora of triangular connecting faces protruding from the it in the entry of the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo. The metal white pieces were connected together using a relatively simple process, by connecting  a series of isosceles triangles – even though the structure appears complex, it is actually quite simple in its construction.
