the site of irreversible destiny

designed by arakawa & madeline gins

arakawa and gins believe their architecture allows its inhabitants to fend off death. the site of irreversible destiny in yoro park is just one of multiple projects they completed under this pretense. other projects include a house in new york, lofts in japan and plans for a housing project and city. unfortunately, their mission proved unsuccessful for arakawa, who died in 2010. gins is still spreading the dream of immortality on the lecture circuit. as quoted in an interview for the new york times, she says, “this mortality thing is bad news… aging can be outlawed.”
