size: 1 km
project description: The goal is to explain that simplicity is not a simplification or reduction of something which is complex or redundant, and to explain that design process should start by finding natural simplicity. Redundancy is explored as an element of an architectural form which will emphasize the thing from which it should have been discarded in order to become a simulation of simplicity by using reduction as a principle. The result is an open sea as a natural simplicity; locations (sea, shore, hill), programs (wellness, spa, floating) (Japan); and, as inspiration to feel peace and the essence of architectural objects.
