Residence of Daisen - Keisuke Kawaguchi.  The house consists of several living spaces connected by passageways that strategically meander around the trees.  According to the architect, "The figue of the trees are beautiful.  They are the legitimate habitants of the forest."  Additionally, by raising the house off the ground on pillars, the architect not only prevented potential snowfall problems, but also allowed for more breeze to past through the home.  It is a home that truly coexists with nature.
