The LEANDRO ERLICH ROOM

This is the first accommodation artwork by Argentine's conceptual artist Leandro Erlich. Here you can expect the unexpected and experience an unforgettable stay that will test your visual senses. The freewill water pipe "Lighting Pipe" in the room is one artwork you will not easily forget.

When I first visited the SHIROIYA HOTEL, already under construction and Sou’s direction, I was impressed by his brilliant and innovative approach to this project: creating something totally new, while also preserving the pre-existing structure. I felt that I was witnessing a magical process in reverse, the creation born of demolition--which is really the nature of creativity. Watching Sou work, I realized that this building would be like no other and that the incorporation of new ideas into the existing form would create a unique accomplishment. The result is a dynamic excavation that highlights the power of empty space and air. I felt, for a moment, as if I were inside of Calvino’s Invisible Cities. One of these stories describes a building that is invisible to the eye but whose pipes and electrical tubes can be seen. I’ve envisioned this architectural detail as the veins of invisible creatures. This was the inspiration behind the Lighting Pipes that run throughout the building. Architecture is a manifestation of the human imagination and also a springboard for the creativity of the present moment, of the power of art to interface with everyday life.
