Tokujin Yoshioka's Kou-an Glass Tea House Reinterprets the Traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony

Image
Japanese architect Tokujin Yoshioka has offered up his own reinterpretation of the classic culture of a Japanese tea ceremony with the stunning “Kou-an Glass Tea House” in Kyoto. A testament to the famous Japanese attention to detail in design and architecture, the weights and angles of the transparent glass design plays on the concept of Japanese history as well as its position in today’s society. The Kou-an allows visitors to appreciate the natural world by blending into their surroundings, while being able to view the entire Kyoto landscape from its position 220 meters above ground.

ANDRE SARAIVA - MONSIEUR A : ANDRE - アンドレMR A

アンドレ・サレヴァは、ポルトガル人の両親を持ち、スウェーデンのウプサラで生まれ、パリで育つ。1985年からグラフィティを始め、パリの初期グラフィティシーンの主要メンバーであるインベーダー(Invader)やゼウス(Zevs)と共にバンクシー(Banksy)のストリート・アート映画『Exit through the Giftshop』に出演した。東京・南青山にあるクラブラウンジ「ルバロンドパリ(Le Baron de Paris)」の創始者でもある。

++++++

André aka Monsieur André aka Monsieur A, born Andre Saraiva is a French graffiti artist. He paints a distinctive stick-figure character, usually with a top hat and an 'X' in place of one of the eyes. He started doing graffiti in 1985.

Born in Sweden, Andre became famous in the late 90's with Mr A, a cartoonish character with a round head, a cross and a circle for his eyes, a big smile and very long legs, which he used to draw all over the streets of Paris. He is part of the early parisian graffiti scene along with Invader and Zeus, and he appears in Banksy street art movie, Exit Through the Gift Shop. His distinctive style, poetic and joyful, and his use of pink color, made him quickly stand…

Revolutions On Air : The Golden Era of New York Radio 1980 - 1988

Image
New York City Radio during the 1980s featured the most dynamic and influential soundtrack the city has ever heard.
Revolutions On Air is the story of mix show legends and studio wizards like Shep Pettibone, Tony Humphries, The Latin Rascals, Marley Marl, and Kool DJ Red Alert - innovators whose “anything goes” attitude pushed the emerging hip-hop, electro, freestyle, and house music scenes and kept radio listeners citywide hooked to their tape decks in order to record these now-classic mixes.

Electro Festival - Ultra Japan 2015 @Odaiba

Image
Say what you want about the actual quality of the music on offer – the first Tokyo version of Miami-born EDM spectacle Ultra was a smashing success last year: tickets sold out in seconds, and the assembled masses gave laptop-busters like Hardwell, Martin Garrix and Afrojack fanatically enthusiastic welcomes. It's no surprise, then, that expectations are already high for the 2015 edition of Ultra Japan, which looks set to eclipse last year's party with a lineup headed by David Guetta, Armin van Buuren and Skrillex. As of early April, two batches of pre-sale tickets have been sold out – look out for the third sale in the weeks to come.

Open Sep 19-21
Time Doors 9am, start 11am
Admission One-day pass ¥13,000, three-day pass ¥39,000, VIP one-day pass ¥30,000

Tokyo's Blue Bottle Coffee by Schemata Architects

Image
American coffee chain Blue Bottle Coffee has opened two outposts in Tokyo designed by Schemata Architects. The first location is based in a reworked storage building, encompassing a roastery, cafe, offices, barista training area as well as a pastry factory located in the Kiyosumi-Shirakawa area. The space has been renovated to become a continuous and open space, with large glass doors and screens installed for transparency among everyone. A skylight was also installed to maximize the amount of natural lighting in the space, on top of indoor greenery. With an open plan concept emphasizing simplicity and heavy on its use of wood and steel throughout, the space maintains its industrial beginnings updated for modern Tokyo. The second location is a cafe located near the Omotesando station in the trendy Aoyama area, featuring much of the same industrial aesthetic. Surrounded by trees and slightly tucked away from the busier parts of the neighborhood, the coffee shop is spacious and well-…
