Text description provided by the architects. The Seian University is located within the views of the Lake Biwa. The curriculum of the Spatial Design class every year produces their landscape using “reed” grows. This is the second time I used reed, which is grown in Biwako, Shiga, as a material for a stall for a school festival.

Though last time I used it simply for a place to sell Oden,one of the Japanese traditional food, this time I added the idea of "systematic" (there is a certain rule exists where I found interesting).

First of all, I prepared six panels of reeds and put them (the front, back, left, right and the tops for the roof parts) together with reeds. As a panel it doesn't stand itself yet but putting them together and building them makes it possible to stand and gives us some space inside.

Seen from the front of the stall, structured randomly but systematically, the stall looks like a gabled roof which is familiar to the Japanese. Oden also is familiar and usually reminds us of our mom's cooking. A small discovery of a roof and a memory of their mom's cooking made the people feel relaxed and came to buy food with a warm feeling when a chilly day.

It takes only a couple of days to build this type of stall and it can be built easily. I would like to have more opportunities to provide some spaces like this kind of temporary stall for future projects.
