Abstract:
Tokyo-based design firm nendo created a new plaza, called CoFuFun, in the small town of Tenri, Nara, Japan. The plaza features five discs, placed at four different heights, each with concentric stairs that also act as benches and amphitheater seating. The precast manufacturer created the discs by casting precast concrete pieces as giant pizza slices. Each disc comprises up to 37 different pieces (slices).
