The Structural System of the Horizontal Void

The structure consists of 25 thin wooden boards 180mm wide and 33mm thick aligned at 450mm pitch, and four reinforced steel bars connecting these ultra-thin wooden boards for structural strength. These dainty wooden boards placed evenly spaced apart are colored red brown with oil stain, for an expression of robust presence in contrast to the inorganic, all-white interior.
