Reversible Destiny Lofts
These Reversible Destiny Lofts were built in 2005 in suburban Mitaka in Tokyo.
The project concept, coined by Shusaku Arakawa and Madeline Gins and termed procedural architecture, was the first of its kind.
Designed in memory of Helen Keller, the textures, shapes, and circulation pathways accentuate our senses beyond what meets the eye.
She became a source of inspiration as she fought the stigma she faced and was able to “Reverse her destiny”. Apart from being an essential part of the architectural dialogue, it serves as rental housing and a host to a multitude of educational and cultural programs.
