Proposal of a workplace centered on common spaces based on the relationship between architecture and furniture

Outline of work

In modern Japan, improvement of the working environment has become an issue against the background of long working hours and diversification of working styles, and in recent years, in office spaces, it has been emphasized to develop a common space for active communication. ing. Office spaces using the free address method and functional furniture by furniture makers have emerged for such office environments, but since architecture and furniture are often designed separately, there is still a workplace that integrates them. Not realized. Therefore, in this plan, one district including a small and medium-sized enterprise support facility open to the area and a community-based broadcasting station will be integrated as a target site, and architecture and furniture will be centered on a common space that creates interaction between workers. Proposes a workplace base that has been integrated. In the community-based broadcasting station office renovation plan, a one-sided common space type office with furniture on the windows and walls was designed, and in the small and medium-sized enterprise support facility rebuilding plan opened in the area, common space inside and outside the building We proposed a new office building with a seismic wall to which various furniture of 350 mm module can be attached. We believe that a workplace centered on a common space where architecture and furniture are designed in an integrated manner will help improve the working environment.

Moving wind smoke
――Research on moving space that creates natural ventilation ――

Outline of work

Natural ventilation, as explained by Bernoulli's theorem, has the disadvantage that it does not work in the absence of wind. Therefore, in this research, we devise a mechanism that enables natural ventilation by utilizing the relative air flow generated by moving the space itself. Next, the spatial shape and opening arrangement for this mechanism to work effectively will be clarified by CFD simulation. Finally, we will create a small real space based on the above examination, verify the effectiveness of the mechanism, and present the possibility of a new smoking space in modern cities.

In this design, in order to create a relative air flow, the space unit is mounted on a four-wheeled vehicle and towed manually. In addition, an air supply port was installed in the lower rear part of the space unit, and an exhaust port (with a smoke exhaust filter) was installed in the upper part.

As for how to use the real space, it is assumed that you will visit sightseeing spots. The opening is designed so that the scenery of the city is easy to see and people's eyes are not bothered. When stopped, the two walls are flipped up and connected to the external space to be used as a place like a teahouse where many people gather. This is reminiscent of the lifestyle culture that used to stop at a teahouse and take a break when traveling between post towns on a kago.

By designing these real spaces, we propose the possibility of new smoking spaces in modern cities.

Town renovation by squeeze  -Reconstruction of boundaries with fittings and obstacles-

Outline of work

In traditional Japanese architecture, the space was partitioned by obstacles and fittings according to the purpose. With the modernization after the Meiji era, the boundaries of obstacles and fittings changed to walls. The decrease in the inner and inner cuts separated people's activities, and the decrease in the inner and outer cuts changed the townscape. Recognize the goodness of being no longer used and propose new possibilities.
Examining the types of quotas reveals that each quota has three elements with different positions, physical functions, and meanings, and no combination of them is the same. Since the usage and design of Shikiri change with the times, it was found that it represents a change in consciousness.
The site will be Kiba, Koto-ku. Kiba once prospered as a timber town, and people lived in harmony with waterside spaces such as water transportation and woodworking. It became economically rich due to modernization, but it turned into a murky town dotted with closed walls. Use the closed walls to reconstruct the boundaries with fittings and obstacles.
On the closed wall surface, add a layer consisting of a wooden frame and a cut. The building, the external environment, people's activities, etc. were separated, but the relationship will be reconstructed by establishing a soft boundary. The threshold is determined by the external environment and internal functions, but it changes flexibly according to the seasons and events. As the bustle of Kiba begins to spread, the layers of Kiba will also expand, creating a new townscape of Kiba.

Living with furniture

In this study, we studied the relationship and condition of furniture and architecture, and used it as a clue to design a house. By actively engaging furniture with architecture, we conducted research and designed housing with the aim of creating a space in which new acts, human relationships, and the relationship between space and furniture occur.
First, study 1) study that combines building components such as pillars, floors, walls, and ceilings with furniture, study 2) how they can relate to space, study 3) furniture related to architecture I confirmed how to interact with people.
The house was designed based on these studies. It is assumed that three households, a young couple, an old couple, and a couple and two children, will live in the house. The dwelling units are separated by furniture. We have created a relationship where we can wait for a connection while being separated.
By associating furniture and architecture, we create a boundary between the dwelling units and the inside of the dwelling unit, and a boundary between the outside and the inside, and propose a space that is separated but connected.

"Lamp shade cafe"

From the consideration of the relationship between things and space, in many architectures, it was possible to see the relationship in which things are added after the space is created to complement the space. In this work, the functions and characteristics of things are expanded and the priorities of the elements that make up space are broken by considering the situation in which things and spaces exist independently. Many restaurants and cafes have lampshades in the audience seats. From this poetic situation where people gather under the light, the lampshade can be extracted as a cafe character. This cafe has a large lamp shade as a structure, and the inside of the lamp shade is the top light. As a result, the situations in which each of the structure, the opening, and the object existed can be organized, and a space that is descriptive and highly transparent can be created. In addition, some lampshades are steel pipes (fake pillars) that function as rain gutters and pipes, which breaks the orderly grid. I am conscious of the structure like an artificial forest where the crowded lampshades shed light that is different from the sunlight through the trees.

Algorithmic Architecture

Algorithm architecture is a design method that uses information processing technology and involves fine discrete processes with fine resolution, and redefines the relationship between nature and humans, and the relationship between nature and act = artificial construction. Nature is an infinite continuum, but when human interpretation is added to it in the process of design, it is inevitably "discretized" into finite elements. An algorithm is also a method for discretizing and understanding nature, but unlike the conventional coarse resolution discretization process up to modern times, it discretizes nature with finer resolution and nature as a continuum. It is an attempt to get as close as possible to itself.
