Nendo looks for the first landscape architecture project in an ancient Japanese tomb
The prolific Japanese design studio Nendo has now entered the field of urban design, unveiling its huge CoFuFun Plaza near Kyoto. The plaza is located outside Tenri Station in Nara Prefecture, Japan. It is the largest architectural project since the studio’s renovation of the Siam Discovery Shopping Center in Bangkok last year. This is also Nendo’s first public space. The studio developed a master plan for the 6000-square-meter site of Tianli Station, which has not been used before. “This space is basically unused,” Nendo founder Oki Sato told Dezeen. “They wanted us to design a park in front of the train station with an information center, cafe and music stage.” “It took three years to complete. This is our first and one of our largest buildings.” Read For more information about Dezeen: Watch the next one: Nendo makes ultra-thin silicone vases on jellyfish-Subscribe to our YouTube channel for the latest architecture and design movies: Like Dezeen on Facebook: Follow Dezeen on Twitter: On Instagram Follow us: Check out our Pinterest:.
