Daiwa pharmacy

Daiwa pharmacy is an installation inside of a preexisting twostory building, inorder to maintain it for future installations by artists. Jun Aoki & Associates put it into practice for the Mito Junior Chamber, planned by the Art Tower Mito, Contemporary Art Gallery Japan. We were thrilled to be involved.

The successful preservation of the rooms in the existing building keeps the original state but the spaces connecting those rooms, such as stairs and corridors have been remodeled. A part of a fresco by Ghirlandaio with birds has been extracted, and sheets of CG paper printed with the image have been used to cover the floor and walls in the corridors and stair space.
