Shinjuku Megastructure Plan  ~ City planning on the premise of updating by "Megastructure" ~

Outline of work

"Mega", a design method popular in the 1960s, is an alternative to the current city planning that grows vertically through scrap and build, which is based on a completely different logic from the architect's idea of creating rich architecture and cities. Rethink "structure".
By investigating megastructures around the world and classifying morphological characteristics into several types, the definition of "megastructure" was clarified, and at the same time, characteristics that are useful in modern times / characteristics that cause decline were extracted.
With the area on the railroad track on the north side of JR Shinjuku Station as the planned site, a megastructure with a lifespan of 200 years consisting of two huge artificial lands consisting of Feelendir trusses was set up based on the transportation functions related to station use. .. Substructures that can be constructed and demolished in a short period of time and can respond to changes in urban demand over time will be inserted inside the truss and on artificial land. The substructure ensures sustainability and variability with a built-in construction system. The megastructure, which gives fluidity to transportation functions, has the autonomy to update itself, and opens a large framed space that spreads horizontally to cities and people, shows the ideal form of urban space in the future.

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.
