Air Garden by Ryo Yamada, a momentary project by Ryo Yamada wins the WAN Small Spaces - Temporary Award 2017

We are pleased to congratulate Ryo Yamada, winners of the WAN Small Spaces - Temporary Award 2017 with their short-term design of Air Garden.

Ryo Yamada’s design was selected from from the six shortlisted projects. Judging this year’s award were our expert jury panel, who consisted of: Russ Edwards, Design Director at Pocket Living, Nils Johan Mansåker, Managing Director, Design Leader and Co-Owner of Fortunen Architects, Adam Tither, Director at EPR Architects, and Jonathan Manser, CEO of The Manser Practice. The judges felt the scheme was imaginative and gave inspiring experiences to the visitor.

“It’s slightly precarious nature is what’s endearing about it. It’s simplistic.” Adam Tither

“Fine concept, giving some essential space experiences to the user. Well organised wooden structure.” Nils Johan Mansåker
