We received hundreds of outstanding submissions to our #TinyArchitect – Architecture is Everywhere social media contest that it was hard to choose a winner. But after reviewing the entries, iconic Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto has selected the winner and top finalists! Read on for a glimpse of their incredible work.
This fall, JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles and Sou Fujimoto Architects launched #TinyArchitect – Architecture is Everywhere, a social media contest inviting the general public to envision epic architecture on a small scale using their imagination by pairing only small figurines and daily household objects. The entries exceeded our highest expectations, with more than 400 submissions from the U.S. and Japan through Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. The range of entries created eye-opening landscapes from everything under the sun: dried noodles, bottle caps, sesame bagels, piano keyboards, forks, paper towels, and much more.
We want to thank every entrant for the creativity and passion shown in their submission, and we hope that the project brought a sense of community and inspiration at a time when it’s needed more than ever. View the winners below, and more selected entries on our website – and never forget that big inspiration can come in small packages!
“I'm grateful that so many people have applied to the contest.
I have found myself extremely inspired by the power of everyone’s imagination."
