Study on Hashirama-Sochi; Equipment In Between

The term hashirama-sochi (intercolumnar device), describes the architectural elements that occupy the gaps between columns in Japanese architecture.
It is conceptually analogous to the window. Nakatani Seminar produces short films that documents how these devices transition between different states (e.g. open/closed, day/night, etc.).
This work has been conducted as part of YKK AP's Windowology research since 2014.
