The Facemaker

LFA 2010: IE = HOME at the Embassy of Japan

Five young Japanese architects all living and working in London, chose a site and designed a home, setting their own brief and creating their own imaginary client. Working in the evenings and at weekends (all have day-jobs working for established firms such as Stanton Williams and Sheppard Robson) they produced a series of beautifully detailed models and drawings to explain their ideas.

Nest by Hiroki Kakizoe is a house for a family that lives and works at home. Located on Shoreditch High Street it occupies the site18th century terraced house. Where a conventional English house would have a solid front wall of brick with openings, Kakizoe’s house has a translucent façade etched with the pattern of the original. Inside privacy can be found in a series of floating nests, which accommodate functions such as sleeping and bathing.

Tokuichiro Oba was another to explore notions of public and private. His ‘Small House inside a Ruin’ provides a home for an artist located in the former Wiltshire Brewery in Bethnal Green. Sliding doors open up the walls so that a large studio space becomes a public gallery.

    Twobop Lookbook 2010 by Oliver Kruger

    2Bop started in 2004 as a way to turn a passion for classic video games into a form of expression.

    2Bop draws inspiration primarily from games that were popular in South Africa at corner shops and arcades in the1980’s and early 1990’s when gameplay was key and graphics if they were good were an added bonus. Disadvantaged areas during apartheid South Africa had little to offer in terms of exposure to cutting edge international design or computer technology but the bootleg arcade games that used twenty cent pieces (a 2Bop) to play at the corner shop were a window into what was happening in the outside world. These games granted access to excellent electronic entertainment and exposed the 2Bop crew to intuitive and engaging interface design, game design, graphic and sound design primarily from Japan and North America. And so began a long fascination with the medium that shows no signs of stopping.

    If you are a professional logo designer, I bet you are familiar with the feeling when just after securing the order for some corporate logo design you find yourself trapped in the searches for inspiration.
