Paper is such an inspirational material that as designers, we want to explore it more and more. It has so many various meanings in different cultures. Especially in Far east, where paper was first created, nurtures and artistic ritual of creation: it is assumed to be very precious and valued.
Project aims to bring back the old tradition of paper making which is assumed to be one of “The Living Treasures” in Japan to an old ware- house located in Brooklyn, close to Gowanus Canal. The two storey high space is an artist residency/workshop space that will revitalize “the craft of traditional Japanese paper making” as well as sharing it with the community.
Status: School Project
Location: Brooklyn, NY, US
