Chicken Coop

Japanese architect Kengo Kuma conceives the Chicken Coop as a representation of collective housing. The structure is built from charred wooden boards following the traditional Japanese technique of Shou Sugi Ban which is intended to contrast with the environment of the mexican beaches. The project gives way to a permeability in walls and ceilings that provides shade and ventilation to the chickens that inhabit it. The eggs are used as part of the sustainability program in the kitchen of the Foundation and the Hotel Escondido.
