Precarious yoshi bar made from thousands of stacked reeds

When heading out for a drink I would be thrilled to end up at this yoshi bar masterpiece. It was constructed by Naoya Matsumoto using thousands of reeds to form a decorative and functional enclosure.

The entire social space is made from naturally grown fibers from Biwako, Shiga, Japan. They are compiled and leaned on one another to form the finished enclosure. The precarious architecture projects a sense of temporality causing occupants to savor each moment. The experience is intimate, but the enclosure also allows for the enjoyment of the breezy outdoor environment.
