KIT Pavilion by Atelier K

The “KIT Pavilion” is an office and meeting space for the Kyoto Institute of Technology.
The building was designed by Japanese Architects Atelier K (Akira Kakuda).

“Situated on a corner of the campus, the multifunctional building draws from and integrates the adjacent landscaping into the conditions of the interior. to the south, an ‘active yard’ consisting of a curvilinear ramp becomes the approach path to the entrance, while a ‘static yard’ finished with a carpet of white sand is tucked into the layout with three rooms arranged around it. Clearly read from the exterior as a folded surface, the roof and wall form cuts away sections of its elevation to enable natural daylight to enter from the west.”
