In 2001, architect Yo Shimada collaborated with students from Kyoto University of Art and Design to create ‘Sticky Note Structures’, an installation project using over 30,000 sticky notes over the span of 3 days. Shimada produced ‘cells’ by combining 4 sheets together in a repetitive process. Nothing more was added beyond the notes’ adhesive, but the result was a vivid experience for those who had a chance to see it. The wall-like structure was created and displayed at ARTZONE, an experimental gallery space managed by the university. Tato Architects, the award-winning firm established by Shimada in 1997, has worked mainly on houses but has also completed a variety of other projects including a café, dental clinic, and meeting place. The official site notes the firm’s mission statement as a means to create architecture that will make the environment more attractive, an expression of love.
