Casa do Vento – Wind’s House

Casa do Vento is the place which has been housing the project Jardim dos Ventos, coordinated by Toshi Tanaka and Ciça Ohno, since 2001.

The activities occur in various places of the house: the inner rooms – tatame room, atelier and kitchen – and the outside spaces – flattened soil stage, wood stage, moss stage, wood, balcony and vegetable-garden. These are areas favouring a relationship of respect and reciprocity with the body’s nature and the environment.
