Collaboration with STUDIO MUMBAI
STUDIO MUMBAI is based in Mumbai, a city on the west coast of India. The LOG project is led by Mr. Bijoy Jain of STUDIO MUMBAI, and this is his first time to work on a construction project outside of India.
One of the characteristics of Bijoy Jain, the founder of STUDIO MUMBAI, is to incorporate the “strength of the hand” into the design. The architectural spaces he creates consider people, creatures, and the environment, and one can sense that he somehow has a connection with the spirit of the Japanese people.
He continues to say that even with the LOG project, the revalidation of the application of human power draws forth a great energy that cannot be seen with the eye. This philosophy goes beyond the realm of architecture, and it gave us important hints not only for modern ways of living and workmanship but also for our efforts towards local areas, which is the origin of Discover Link Setouchi.
Through our collaboration with STUDIO MUMBAI, we explore universal values which stretch across various borders such as those of countries, cultures, and languages. We wish to express our hope that the things which connect this city to the future will come through LOG.
