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



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.
