This project is a complex building of houses and galleries built in Tokyo, Toshimaku. One tree is organically integrated with a combination of parts having different characteristics, such as a trunk, a branch, and a leaf. As with the tree, we tried to create an organic architecture that could be formed by a hierarchical combination of different parts such as plants/pleats (as openings) / concrete boxes.Save this picture!© Vincent HechtSave this picture!Plants – DiagramSave this picture!© Vincent HechtWhile concrete boxes are stacked three-dimensionally, the main structure containing complicated voids is made. Then, open the windows with pleats in them, agitating the inside and outside, and at the same time create a place that fits with the physical sensation of the person. In addition, we set up planting around the pleats and create an organic whole like breathing in the surrounding environment like a tree.Save this picture!© Vincent HechtWe set up a calm environment such as bedrooms and a gallery inside of the box. On the other hand, the outside of the box becomes terraces, gardens, and the place surrounded by glass as the living room and dining room. Rather than focusing only the internal space of the building, the entire space including the external space like the garden and the street is three-dimensionalized. I intended to create a futuristic and savage architecture that awakens human animal instincts in which the inside and outside are reversed multiple times.

SPORTS journalist and bodybuilding fanatic, Emmerson Campbell recently received financial support from the Guyana Committee of Service (GCS) to assist with his participation at the Sports World Classic 2017 Invitational in Trinidad and Tobago.The organization which was founded last year to help secure sponsorship for local athletes to compete Regionally and Internationally is the brainchild of Leslie Black who said the organization is happy to assist Campbell and wishes him well.According to Black, the entity was formed last year after Guyana’s lightweight professional boxing champion, Clive Atwell suffered severe head injuries during a boxing match at the Giftland Mall and had to seek overseas medical treatment and was in need of financial assistance.Hence, Black approached a number of business persons and got their support and thereafter, GCS was born.Black noted that sponsorship is of paramount importance for athletes to succeed and the GCS will continue to assist.He called on corporate Guyana to give back to sports since it can boost a nation tremendously.
