Boca Mina San Ramon

Yoshiharu Tsukamoto Lab. (Tokyo Institute of Technology)

A window in a restaurant next to La Valenciana silver mine on the outskirts of Guanajuato. A cylinder is inserted into the thick wall—on the exterior, this becomes a planter and on the interior it becomes a small pool of water. Inside, the wall around the window is carved into an arch in which light pools.
