Architect Ryuji Nakamura, who always amazes me by his delicate use of materials, has a new piece up on his website. “Puddle” was part of an exhibition titled “Earth: materials for design” that just recently closed at the Miraikan in Tokyo.

Constructed only using cellophane, the piece – and in fact the exhibition itself – was a study on the way designers, considering their day-to-day interaction with materials, conceive the flow of time on our planet.
