The first image is of the central interior of the Bioscleave House, designed by
Arakawa, 71, with his wife, Madeline Gins. It is designed to help the inhabitants live longer,
with its unpredictable terrain and colour ways that make you feel you are in two places at once . it is thought to keep you active, boost your immune system, your brain to be stimulated and on your toes literally !
the other images are taken from a park in central Japan called “Site of Reversible Destiny,” also designed by the couple ‘Made up of acres of warped surfaces, it offers visitors advice, in a handout leaflet, like“Instead of being fearful of losing your balance, look forward to it.” ‘
