‘The Sounds of Kyudo’
Kyudo is traditional Japanese archery practised by a certain type of Buddhist monks as the centre of their daily lives. Arrows that produce a whistlye are used and an experienced monk can tell how good a shot was by the sound of its arrow. Designed for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the project is a public pavilion exhibiting Kyudo, where the architecture emphasises on the sound of the archery shot. The building becomes a sonic landscape framing the archers.
