The Magical House is a project designed for the Maison de la culture du Japon à Paris (The Japan Cultural Institute in Paris) by Atelier Bow-Wow (Yoshiharu Tsukamoto, Momoyo Kaijima and
Yoichi Tamai, Tokyo) and Didier Fiuza Faustino (Bureau des Mésarchitectures, Paris). These
architects have long explored the issue of the habitat, inventing innovative and often provocative ‘machinery / habitats’.
They have come together to create a ‘magical environment’ for the second component of the
Transphere Exhibition cycle.
For The Magical House, the architects have chosen to work a common material in a logic of cyclical production.
Wood, the material used in the construction of the two buildings, is sourced in Portugal and will be sent back
there at the end of the show for a second life. Although the architects have decided to work the same material,
the two lodgings they present offer visitors two complementary ideas.
For this collaboration, Didier Fiuza Faustino has designed a minimum habitable form, close to a cell, which
disturbs our ability to identify architecture according to its traditional characteristics, while achieving a certain
sensitivity. Along with this sensitive installation, Atelier Bow-Wow has made the generous offer of a structure in
the shape of a roof that the public can use, becoming a place of exchange and conviviality.
Visitors are invited to experience the two architectures plunged into a penumbra generating a play of shadow
and light, sound and silence, and creating a poetic atmosphere inspired by Junichiro Tanizaki’s masterpiece, In
Praise of Shadows, and the concept of the ‘uncanny’ as described by Sigmund Freud.
Though the exhibition invites poetic meandering, it reveals as well the cultural, economic and political considerations in play and will be conducive to the organization of workshops and meetings.
