Meme – Experimental House by Kengo Kuma and associates

Check out this wonderful experimental residence in Hokkaido, Japan. Kengo Kuma and associates were in charge of the first experimental house, and in the process of designing, they got a number of clues from “Chise,” the traditional housing style of the Ainu. What is most characteristic about Chise is that it is a “house of grass” and “house of the earth.” While in Honshu (the main island) a private house is principally a “house in wood” or “house of earthen wall,” Chise is distinctively a “house of grass,” as the roof and the wall are entirely covered with sedge or bamboo grass so that it can secure heat-insulating properties.
