Yusuhara Wooden Bridge Museum challenges and connects

Between two buildings, the Yusuhara Wooden Bridge Museum is a bridge linking two structures long separated while also doubling as a facility with accommodations and workshops, excellent for artist-in-residence programmes.

Structurally built with small parts in a cantilever system that traditional architecture in China and Japan often subscribed to, it is an example of sustainable design, showing that a large cantilevel can still be achieved without large materials.
