Kioicho Monument


Artist: Shinji Ohmaki Studio
Type: Art installation
Location: Tokyo, Japan
Year: 2016

The symbol of Kioicho district is this 8.3 meters high sculpture monument, surrounded by tall buildings.
It is made of stainless-steel [Channel, H-type, angle type, etc] because of its excellent weather ability, strength and stiffness. The structure system is truss structures.
We collaborated between artists and fabricators, linking structural dynamics with art and fabrication and at the end we were able to manage a complex geometry.
The particularity of this installation is that it is possible to disassemble and relocate the monument since all components connect without welding.
