Intervention in a landscape of rice fields beside a sculpture museum housed in a former electricity power station. These are landscape elements that are not transported directly from our culture, but that seek to understand and interpret Toyama's architectural and landscape culture. Previous works and research produce a paper-folding pavilion and a roof that evokes contemporary Japanese fabrics (such as Miyake’s). The experience gained in this work is continued in the urban steps constructed in Toledo.
