Inverted House is taking shape

Inverted House is taking shape

The winners of this year’s LIXIL International University Architectural Competition – the AHO team behind “Inverted House” – has spent the summer in Tokyo, developing the project. 

The students have been in Tokyo since May, where they are preparing the project in details together with Japanese architects from Kengo Kuma and Associates (KKAA), building engineers, climatic engineers and a local contractor.

 “The project is continuously developing in terms of design details, structural requirements, local regulations and cost estimations. In this process, we are constantly working with physical models, drawings, 3D models and 1:1 mock ups. Besides weekly meetings at KKAA and the construction engineer’s offices, we are fortunate to daily use the Shibaura House as our office space”, said the students.
