The Yokohama Apartment Project allows four artists to live in the heart of a residential community in a specially built complex. It has four corner towers with a central communal work-space which can be used for collaboration, meetings, community events and more – throughout the year. The building won the Biennale Expo Jury’s prize in 2016 for the focus on community collaboration.
