The Belgian offices of Schenk Hattori and Sugiberry have been selected – together with five Japanese agencies – for the prestigious Under-35 Architects (U-35) prize and accompanying exhibition in Osaka, Japan. The exhibitions runs from 19 to 29 Otctober.
Schenk Hattori has been nominated for ‘Territory of Perception’, a project for a school in Melle (Open Call), and Sugiberry for ‘Nose’, a design for a temporary café for the Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk in 2016. The project by Sugiberry comprises three benches of Takigawa stone with Awagami Radish Paper Joints, within a cladded space of the remaining paper (that was used to make the joints).
A symposium is being organised at which the designers will discuss their work with a panel of eminent Japanese architects such as Toyo Ito, Junya Ishigami, Sou Fujimoto and Akihisa Hirata. The seven offices taking part in the U-35 exhibition are also nominated for the prestigious Toyo Ito Prize.
