Junya IshigamiKanagawa Institute of Technology Workshop, Kanagawa 2008. While seemingly random, the dozens of columns that populate the space were designed with great specificity so as to encourage certain clusters of activity. Various nodes settled organically within the space, creating distinguishable zones that simultaneously maintain an open and collaborative environment. 

There are also two different types of columns in the space, despite their visual similarity. Roughly half are embedded into the concrete slab, and support the weight of the roof. The others are welded to the roof structure, and combat sheer and seismic forces. Photos (C) Jonathan Savoie
