Temporary Llove Hotel by Tokyo Designers Week 2010

Bizarre, nasty, clean, crazy, rough, colorful, neutral, playful, boring, funny, interesting... and much much more is what this hotel is offering. If Tokyo Designers Week 2010 were looking for publicity obviously this is one of the best ones I have ever seen. Its not a supermegastar architect doing a whole floor of a hotel... This is a 1 room uniqueness, each single room doesn't have anything to do with any of the other and you can indeed spend the night there but for a short period of time as it will disappear after the Designers Week. Also the fact that is pure Chaos makes this insubstantial building much much more appealing and interesting.

Even though this has more to do with interior design than architecture I have to say that I found here some radical approaches that are remarkable... For instance the way limits are diluted but keeping the original structure of the facade and at the same time contrast has been enhanced with the rest of  buildings around. Rough materials are everywhere but there is some clean wave around the bulding, distribution is uneven and it is seriously hard to tell if there are different spaces or everything is continuous (to me both things at the same time). This is one of my touché exceptions of interior design. I wish I could see more of these approaches in architecture.
