Branching out, Aiba created a larger dwelling by recycling a pineapple can. The “Hawaiian Pineapple Resort” adds a fantastical theme to the everyday can while adding greenery that pokes out from the resort roof.
The treehouses evolved into towering lighthouse dioramas perched high on traditional rocks, with the delicate foliage encircling Aiba’s spiraling wooden walkways leading to the lighthouse model on top. Aiba’s architectural explorations also developed into the quirky Michelin hotel, which is a stone clay figure of the famed Michelin man. Hotel windows poke out around his body, with foliage, bonsai trees and balconies lining his abdomen and legs. Tiny Rolls Royces wait below.
