The Roof & Mushrooms Pavilion
The Roof & Mushrooms Pavilion at Kyoto University of Art and Design was designed by Ryue Nishizawa and Nendo to be an organic pavilion that mimics the natural environment around it.
The pavilion itself functions not only as a roof to a pathway down the mountainside, but also as a wall, and it is meant to reproduce the feeling of walking through a dense forest.
It is surrounded by metal stools that were designed to mirror the shape and random patterns in which the local wild mushrooms grow.
It’s an amazing, fluid design, but I have to admit, I can’t look at it without wondering what it would feel like to skateboard down the length of it.
