KWY is a multidisciplinary platform investigating the nature of collaboration within the context of specific projects. KWY was founded in 2009 by architects Ben Allen and Ricardo Gomes in Berlin, and curator and editor James Bae in Los Angeles. KWY’s projects are collaborations between the principals and invited specialists. Recent collaborators include artists, writers, curators, educators, designers and other architects. With few initial preconceptions, each project begins with dialogue and analysis between the collaborators. This process-oriented methodology often leads to diverse thoughts that are otherwise unexpected and unimaginable.

Flagship Shelters / Bottle Collectors VIP
Presented at the 2016 edition of Roskilde Festival on the theme of “equality”, Flagship Shelters / Bottle Collectors VIP is inspired by three of the most exclusive and prominent fashion stores’ headquarters in Tokyo designed by super-star architects. In collaboration with KWY and Warehouse, SUPERFLEX has interpreted the world-class architecture and downscaled it into shed-size structures made in basic, accessible materials, such as wood and translucent plastic canvas.
