cornfield by ryuji nakamura

Such a massive installation made entirely of glue and paper? And I love the idea of seeing in parts depending on your perspective, guess it is a good concept for architecture.

Cornfield is a large-scale installation by japanese architect Ryuji Nakamura. Constructed solely of glue and paper, the structural formalities of the piece balance logic, technique and aesthetics. Its size measures 53.90 m2 with a total volume of around 100m3, expressing a feeling of filling a great space with a rigorous geometry, while transmitting an ephemeral sense of weightlessness.

Its overall planar shape is a triangle consisting of 30°, 60° and 90° which has the height of an average-sized person. The length of its longest side measures 16 meters. Ryuji Nakamura's intentions for the piece were that, he wanted to make it large enough so that one could not view Cornfield in its entirety all at once. The installation is made up of lines upon lines of paper that are drawn upon one another, retaining a subtlety, blending into its surroundings.
