StarArchitect for Starbucks...

Stararchitect Kengo Kuma has done it again. This time for Starbucks in Dazaifu, Japan. This Starbucks is located along the street to the famous  Dazaifu Tenmangu, one of the most popular shrines in Japan also known as “the God for Examination,” with estimared 2million visitors wishing for success.

Success with this Starbucks, using 2000 timber batons spanning from 1.3m-4m and 6cm section. In total the batons cover 4.4km. That's a pretty long distance.

Using a weaving technique the architect has managed to weave the batons diagonally on one point to create a web-like interior envelope.

Will definitely visit this Starbucks if i ever get to Japan.
