Illustration turned 3D in Birds Eye viewhouse by Noma Bar
Graphic design is a strictly two-dimensional business; however, it does not mean that illustrators do not enjoy working with objects in space. Noma Bar, who is normally designing book and magazine covers, adverts, and editorial illustrations, was more than happy to accept the invitation of Momofuku Center (Japan) to set up a treehouse, the 7th in the line of such artist-designed little buildings as commissioned by the Center .
After a walk in the woods, it became obvious for Bar that his building should be a viewhouse, raised at the highest point of the site, overlooking Mount Asama, an active volcano. His visit to the forest also inspired the basic form of his construct: he discovered two leaves on the ground that folded into a bird-like shape. He intended to recreate this experience for the viewhouse, which invites visitors for constant discovery. Upon arrival, at first inspection the structure looks like two leaves; the bird form becomes apparent only from a different perspective. With the Birds Eye Viewhouse, Bar managed to transfer the visual playfulness inherent of graphic design into an architectural, spatial structure.
