This project sits on the boundary between a new development and aging neighbourhood. The architect embraced a narrative approach to imagine and construct a fictional world in reality.

When visitors enter the minimalist futuristic white space capsule, they are surrounded by funnel holes diffusing mysterious light. The Alien Tanuki, moving around the capsule weightlessly, is not merely a piece of art but also a hybrid of artistry, architectural ornament and spatial defining object.
