For the Kobe Biennial’s Art Container Contest, numerous designers were challenged to create an environment with the confines of a standard international shipping container. Designers Masakazu Shirane and Saya Miyazaki decided to create a gigantic kaleidoscope that people could walk inside and experience (sort of like the entrance to Tokyo Plaza).
But it wasn’t just about putting mirrors at every angle so the environment would radically change as people walked through it, explains Shirane. “We wanted to create the world’s first zipper architecture. In other words, this polyhedron is completely connected by zippers. And in order to facilitate even more radical change some of the surfaces open and close like windows.”

Who donated human skulls to Bellevue Goodwill?
Three human skulls were recently donated to a Bellevue thrift store, and now the King County Medical Examiner’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in determining where they came from.
The skulls were donated in June to the Bellevue Goodwill, at 14515 NE 20th St., but there is no record of who brought them in or where that person got them, says Keith Seinfeld of the Medical Examiner’s Office.
