Ein Stein Tea House and Other Architectures by Terunobu Fujimori

Japanese architect Terunobu Fujimori has installed his latest environmental teahouse in a tree at the Museum Island Hombroich. The Ein Stein Haus, or One Stone House, inspired by Zen Buddhism.

The Ein Stein Tea House was planned and realized over a year and now forms an exhibit on a scale of 1:1, which will  be preserved by the Stiftung Insel Hombroich. It reflects the precise knowledge of the history and principles of the tea ceremony and its very personal interpretation by the architect and historian Terunobu Fujimori. In particular, natural materials such as untreated robinia trunks and a wooden boarding carbonized by the traditional Yakisugi method were used.

Karl Heinrich Müller, the founder of Museum Insel Hombroich, had a special interest in the tea ceremony as well as in objects and works of art from the context of this centuries-old tradition. The Foundation's collection includes numerous tea bowls and other vessels that were used in ceremonies. A selection not previously shown is on display.

Terunobu Fujimori combines a sociological interest with a neo-dadaist sensibility, in which he has been capturing absurd situations in Japanese urban space in photographs and drawings since the early 1970s.
