Sunday Post : Architecture

Architecture, has always been a good theme for photography. I love to look at how the fusion of art, design and engineering resulted into impressive structures and buildings.

Here is my entry.

Last December, we dropped by the Kiyoharu Shirakaba Museum during our road trip in Yamanashi, Japan. We were so captivated by the architecture as well as the art pieces displayed within its vicinity. This is the La Ruesh atelier of the Village has sixteen sides that afford spectacular views in all directions. Beautiful!

La Ruesh is a reconstruction of a building designed by Alexandre Gustave Eiffel in Paris which was once the atelier of artists.  (Kiyoharu Shirakaba Museum, Yamanashi)

Another unique structure that made us awed in wonder was the teahouse, by the well-known Japanese architect, Mr Terunobu Fujimori.  

A tea house is referred to a structure designed for holding Japanese tea ceremonies. This structure and specifically the room in it where the tea ceremony takes place is called chashitsu (茶室, literally “tea room”). The architectural space called chashitsu was created for aesthetic and intellectual fulfillment.

We see this more like a treehouse than a traditional tea house. It was a pity we could not take a look at the interior of this tea house.
