Yakushima Takatsuka hut by Shigeru Ban Architects

Yakushima Takatsuka albergue

“Mountain hut built in the National park of Yakushima Island, at an altitude of 1300m. The hut was rebuilt, from paper tube, on the foundation of the old hut taken down of dilapidation. The Paper tube wall allows light to pour inside, by filling transparent tubes in-between. Paper tube was to be able to easily replace one by one when you need to repair.”
