SHIBAURA HOUSE x Hello Sandwich

SHIBAURA HOUSE is one of the latest and the most exciting architecture you can find in Tokyo today. Opened earlier this month, SHIBAURA HOUSE was designed by Sejima Kazuyo of SANAA (it's not a work by SANAA, a little confusing I think) for a printing company as their new office / community space to share with the people in the local area of Shibaura (Tamachi). I was only able to be on the ground floor which apparently is going to be a cafe, but you can see what it looks like in this amazing illustration by Jody Wong here.

The more exciting thing is that my lovely friend Hello Sandwich is having a regular craft workshop in this building!!! I went to her second workshop there to make my own notebooks! It was so much fun the 2 hours went by far too quickly. You should definitely go to her workshop if you are ever in Tokyo, do check out Hello Sandwich blog for future workshop information!

Speaking of Hello Sandwich, she's actually been seen everywhere in Tokyo these days, at the nidi gallery for a group exhibition (with more cute artists mogu-chan and gracie), and at the TOKYO ART BOOK FAIR -the biggest zine fair in Asia- coming up this long weekend. Exciting!!
