Steel Panel House
by Kenji Ido
“It is a three-family house. The ground floor is a mother’s house, the west side of the first and second floor is an elder brother family house, and the east side is a younger brother family house.
There is a courtyard in the center of the building, and the stairs for two families are arranged in the point symmetry with respect to the center of courtyard. The spectacle of the courtyard is like Piranesi’s print or Escher’s infinite stairs.
The outer walls was produced by the client because the brouthers were managing the ironworks, and the friend installed it.”
