The skewers are composed to produce a topographical effect, evoking sea grass.

Lewis. Tsurumaki. Lewis or LTL, is an architecture and design partnership founded in 1993 by Paul Lewis, Marc Rsurumaki and David.J. Lewis.

LTL’s approach is to realize inventive solutions that turn the very constraints of each project into the design trajectory, exploring overlaps between space, program, form, budget and materials.

The firm actively pursues a diverse range of work, maintaining a creative dialogue between built projects and speculative investigations. LTL’s work includes large scale public projects, academic buildings, commercial renovations, residential projects, museum installations, and exhibition designs.

  1. I hate to say it, but the photos of the bamboo look gross to me, like some strange underwater sea creature that conjures revulsion. It would be the last place where I would want to eat a meal. I would lose my appetite.
    Maybe I am just too much of a country girl to appreciate the artful backdrop that is being attempted here.

    That aside, your blog is GREAT!
    I love all of these photos and seeing all of the cool things people are building! So creative and fun.
