Red ribbons of steel, reminiscent of a curtain, form the outer envelope of the Nebuta Museum in Aomori, a port city in northern Japan. Situated behind them are an exhibition hall, a theatre, rehearsal rooms, and a restaurant.
The architects developed their design for the facade without taking recourse to computer-supported design. A paper maquette at the scale 1:50 served as the model for the 748 ribbons, which were then transferred to full scale in sheet steel. Each of the ribbons was formed individually: a machine was developed to attain the respective shapes.
