Woods of Net, Ninotaira Japan – Tezuka Architects

The pavilion is located at the Hakone Open-Air Museum, a unique open museum located in one of the most visited tourist spots in Japan. Woods of Net was added to the collection of art works as part of their 40th anniversary.

The structure is entirely composed of timbers without any metal parts. This new structural program was developed for the pavilion, however, the joint techniques are derived from ancient Japanese wooden temples in Nara and Kyoto. So long as the pavilion is properly maintained,it is capable of existing for over 300 years.
