A new installation by Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto in the Jardins des Tuileries, commissioned by Philippe Gravier Gallery pays tribute to Metabolism, the architectural movement of the 60s, born in Tokyo. The structure is intended to represent both an architectural intervention and a sculpture. Composed of suspended metal
cubes, plants, and stacked boxes, it demonstrates the significance of the Movement’s in the Japanese memory. Founded by a group of Japanese architects, who created futuristic and exciting buildings based on new ideas, the name Metabolism was taken from the biological concept, to represent an image of architecture and cities that shared the ability of living organisms. Fujimoto's second architectural folly to be constructed in Motpellier, France, comes from the very same source of inspiration. and takes the shape of a white tree.
