Secret of Japanese joinery
Buildings are made with many joints, and you can’t see the shape of the joints or how they are used.
Joints aren’t made to be seen, but are used to construct a structure.
So, it’s natural for joints to not be visible when the structure is completed.
That is what is so interesting, beautiful, and fascinating about joints.
Joints exist for their function, so they must be well-made to function, instead of the design.
That’s what I think about it.

We, Suikoushya, plan to establish a school building in Ile de France in 2022. 

This is a project that we want to build with Suikoushya graduates and professional woodworkers. Through this real construction project, Takami would like to pass not only Japanese woodworking techniqs and craftsmanship but also the spirit of the Japanese people involved in making things.
