The architects idea was to hollow out the inside of a container to build an amorphous space like a cave. This “Artificial Topography” is made of only plastic materials, similar to another famous work “Aqua-scape”. About 1000 sheets of the soft plastic material of 10-mm thickness were cut down in contour line form, and were laminated like a stratum. This project is not only considered art work, but also functions as a large piece of furniture. Because all the portions are soft like a sofa, the sofa provides visitors with a nice space for relaxing. More here
