asphalt spot

Asphalt spot is a bastard-hybrid parking-lot-exhibition-hall-facilities facility by Francois Roche and R&Sie(n) in Tokamashi, Japan. Whether the 300m2 folly exists to carry 20 parking spaces on it's undulating roof surface or it is that very surface that purposely hides the folly is called into question. The traditional programmatic idea of primary use and it's relation to support function is neutralized by elevating the supporting functions to prominence. No longer does the exhibit hall and rest facilities command visual and circulatory precedent. Instead, they become subject to the redfined whimsy of a traditionally ignored site element. seen on SpaceInvading
