Shintori Null II

Sakae Miura

Shanghai, China

2002

An unexpected and dramatic restaurant interior in the French Quarter of Shanghai. From a modest streetscape, through a carefully lit bamboo grove and into a space of huge proportions, rich with texture and modulated light.

Structure

Heightened by the theater with which the final huge space is revealed this space has such an unexpected relationship with it's prosaic urban location. It manages to feel like part of some impossible lost period of architecture. Complete and rigorous in every detail yet existing in some parallel dimension.
