Light and Shadow' are elements hard to grasp in everyday life. This structure absorbs the scenary around us, and through reflection it eliminates unnecesary factors, allowing the viewer to witness the fundamental beauty of 'Light and Shadow'.
When 'Light and Shadow' passes through the inside of this form, it reflects against the walls inside where unnecessary elements are eliminated, and what is shown on the other side is the pure form of 'Light and Shadow'.
The concept is very similar to bricks. A singular brick is small, but using them in mass can create architectural environments.
A wall made out of PIXEL can be both straight and curved. It can be used as spatial partitions, and also as exterior material. I believe it can also be used as sliding walls, or even as retrofit windows.
This is an image of PIXEL during the day, used to create a pavilion.“Light and shadow” will fall upon the wall to create a beautiful effect.
