Consideration and design proposal regarding roof composition of public buildings
--Focusing on the near and distant views--

Outline of work

The roof began with a shelter-like primitive character against external forces such as rainfall, wind, and solar radiation, and has been formed in relation to possible construction methods based on materials available from the location environment such as climate and climate. In addition, the roofs that appear as a result of the series have developed to express the cohesiveness of the community, and to ensure the symbolism of the exterior of large buildings. However, since modern times, the roof has been erased due to modernism, high-rise buildings, and the penetration of new building materials, leaving only a homogeneous rectangular space. In the present age that respects diversity, there is a demand for architecture that allows and induces various activities in the building, and in response to this, the roof expression is also diverse. On the other hand, there are many cases where it is used as a symbolic tool that is semi-forcedly quoted only in the form in the cityscape guidelines, etc., and the roof has not been sufficiently positioned in modern architecture. This research positions the tendency of roof expression in public buildings used by many people in the trend of complicated and fragmented social demands, and in the external space, the surface is large in the distant view and the edge is large in the near view. Focusing on the ambivalent character of the perceived roof, the purpose is to derive the roof expression from those configurations and to present the possibility of the next-generation roof expression. A case study that integrates the rhetorical deformation patterns on the roof surface and edges obtained from the analysis of 310 works published in "New Architecture" magazine, and replaces the expressions with respect to the context inherent in the site. The complex facility was designed as. By skillfully utilizing the rhetorical deformation of the roof surface and edges that guarantees the consistency of roof composition and expression, the usefulness of the roof that has an organic relationship with people and nature is shown, and the next-generation roof Presented the possibility of expression.

Think from the thickness  ---  Proposal of space based on consideration of wall and roof thickness (contents)  --- 

By focusing on the thickness (contents) of the walls and roof, we propose a space that takes advantage of the unique sense of space that the operation of thickness attracts and the environmental effects brought about by the characteristics of the contents.
The effect of thickness on the space is a unique experience due to changes in the light environment inside the building and differences in the way the spaces are connected. You can feel various sequences and space changes from the movement, such as the time to pass through the wall and the way the field of view expands. In addition, the scenery that can be seen from the room and the light that fills the space create various relationships with the outside depending on the thickness.
Based on the properties of the material such as transparency and sound absorption, as well as the space obtained by controlling the change in thickness and shape, pay attention to the environmental effect that the contents of the wall have on the room, and be close to people's activities. Think about a living environment.
Agricultural support exchange facilities, including accommodation facilities, that promote the revitalization of local communities while relating to the ideal way of local life centered on agriculture in Okutama Town, based on consideration of the thickness and contents of walls and roofs. Make a plan.

Space design / work "HASHIRA, KABE" and research report developed from architectural elements

We propose an attempt to create a space from architectural elements (pillars, walls, walls, fences, windows, gates, doors, roofs, ceilings, floors, stairs, slopes, edges, terraces ...) with multiple works. In the course of the studies, the specific objects were "pillars" and "walls", and the spaces created by each were expressed using models and drawings. It was confirmed that by reconsidering the object of "architectural elements" that connects architecture and people in this production from a fundamental and new perspective, those relationships will change in a state where architecture and people are closely connected. did it.
The study shown in this production and research report is a record of how a certain architectural element surrounds the space, and how the elements other than the target architectural element respond to changes and support the main architectural element. It can be said that it also confirms whether or not you are doing. It is thought that the form of architecture itself changes as each element interferes with each other to form a space, which in turn causes a certain change in human behavior and living style.
When designing, I think that you will naturally think about the relationship between architecture and people, but at that time, you will be able to create a new space that can be acquired by thinking about the relationship between architecture, architectural elements, and people. I think there is.

Research on the flexibility of architectural space  ---  Design of "University Consortium Surugadai"  --- 

I would like to aim to be a source of creating many kinds of atmospheres with flexibility of architectural space in a university facility where many functions can be replaced frequently.
In this research, we add the operation of "consisting the ceiling with a shell curved surface" in the hierarchy of the skeleton> wall> partition> furniture, which is related to the flexibility of architecture. This is a proposal for sensory flexibility, which reinterprets the skeleton located in the same hierarchy as something that can change depending on the appearance and relationship. As a result, it is possible to create a multi-layered variability and a multi-layered relationship between architecture and people, rather than a variable space created by operating partitions and furniture. At the same time, it is the result of an operation called "repetition" that also has structural flexibility. While having the same composition as a homogeneous space, the relationship between the top and bottom and the response to the site environment such as open and closed contributes to creating a complex atmosphere.
The planned target was facilities shared by universities in the Surugadai area. Plan urban incubation facilities from the perspectives of industry-academia collaboration, cross-academic collaboration, and regional collaboration. Specifically, it consists of a laboratory / office that is supposed to be replaced in a short period of time, a tenant space for local industries, a lecture room, a library, and a gallery. We envisioned an architecture that would be used in a cross-cutting manner with the city while being used by students by collecting small functions that would not be independent as an architecture by itself.

Proposal of housing design process focusing on roof shape based on CFD simulation

We will reconsider architecture from the perspective of wind environment and try to incorporate the theme of environment into the architectural space. By paying attention to the pressure difference around the roof that is created when the wind hits the building, a wind environment that takes in a gentle wind into the house is realized.
By extracting five roof-shaped models that generate negative pressure from two wind directions and integrating the models, we propose a townhouse-type architecture and an independent-type architecture.

Curtain x wall — Design architecture from interior composition —

I discover various things while walking.
In particular, accidental discoveries can be exciting and can be the starting point for new ideas. I thought of a "curtain-like wall" that would allow you to experience a space that tickles your brain.
Using columns and beams, we created a curved surface that makes the curtains wind-friendly, thereby dividing the space and aiming to function as a structure while connecting vertically. This "curtain-like wall" was named "curtain x wall" and was examined as one unit form.
The designed space is shaped by the number and size of the curtains and walls, and becomes a space with a distinctive way of partitioning and viewing. In other words, this is an attempt to design the entire architecture by designing the curtain x wall that is part of the interior.

Surrealist architectural design -dépayser architectural phenomenon object, unheimlich house

"My dear imagination, what I love most of you is that you are unforgiving." Surrealism Declaration André Breton

The movement "Surrealism" brought turmoil and humor to people's minds. I can't help but believe that there are many possibilities for human beings to have a more free life here. This is an attempt to design Surrealist architecture. It does not aim for particularly good architecture. Finally, the house is designed and presented as an answer to Surrealist architecture.
The various expressions in Surrealism are, in common, a strange array of "objects" that give people wonders and convulsions. So how do you make Surrealism an architecture? It finds a hyperreality as a solid real architecture by depaying the phenomena inherent in the various elements that make up the architecture such as pillars.
Eleven architectural elements such as pillars, walls, roofs, stairs, doors, windows, ceilings, floors, chairs, desks, and shelves are regarded as "objects", and interpretation is sought by the incomplete Kojien, and it is made into a private formula. Represented. Using it as a tool, I tried Depaiseman with drawings and models while considering "convulsive beauty". I asked for the contents of the house from the Nohara residence of the anime "Crayon Shin-chan", which has been established as a fictitious common image. Drawing / modeling and quoting family / room composition.
Based on the above, the house was designed.
It's a cramping, mysterious, familiar unheimlich home.

Relationship of Void-Reconsideration of De Stijl Architecture: Development of its characteristic spatial composition-

De Stijl, which emerged in the Netherlands in the 1920s, is divided into horizontal and vertical planes and three primary colors, centered on the painter Piet Mondrian and the artist Theo van Doesburg in a wide range of fields such as painting, sculpture, architecture, and furniture. It is a general art movement that established the composition as a "style", and even today, the composition can be seen in various situations. However, they are destined to be established as a style, which is used as a superficial design style lacking in essence, and at the same time has the possibility of being recognized as a part of corpse.
Especially in three-dimensional architecture, the difficulty of replacing "style" with the essential spatial composition is said to have been the only fulfillment of that proposition by the method of interspersing the constituent members (elementalist method). This can be seen from the fact that it is only the Schroeder House in Rietveld.
In this production, the design style of De Stijl is judged to be summarized in the word elementalism from the historical formation process and the essential characteristics based on the idea, and the purpose is to present a solution different from Schroeder's house. Produced as.
All three works were designed as case studies by referring to the site of Schroeder's house. Following the elementalism, the invisible mass of space was the main component, and by sprinkling it, the design style was developed into the essential space composition.

​Study of pillars
Ceiling prolific

A proposal to give the ceiling the greatest role and consider the possibility of the ceiling as a soil that creates new architectural phenomena as a platform for diverse lifestyles and activities.

The window that triggered

A "window" that allows you to cut out the scenery of your life and get a glimpse of it. Living with a series of small surprises through the windows may allow you to enjoy the abundance of multi-generational and multinational people.

A big life with a small window edge-a wall that creates a sense of distance that connects generations-

We focused on the windows that connect the unchanged indoors and the events that occur outside. People of all ages gather in windows of various thicknesses and are connected with just the right sense of distance.

Above Us-Apartment housing with great expansion-

I would like to position the apartment house in a large area. This apartment house is made up of 124 small roofs. An average of four roofs are owned by a family of 30 households. Some rent one of them, and some own a distant one like a villa. In the expanse created by the gathering of these small roofs, the people of the town and the people who live in this housing complex live together. Different activities continue on this roof, creating a landscape. The newly created landscape is not complete within the site, but is continuous with the landscape farther away.

900m memory wall and 336 landscape doors

What I experienced in the past that I suddenly remember in the time of the present. It is an original landscape called memory. We are always in it. What has created my memory so far is the scenery of houses lined up, and the experience of walking in the alleys and shopping streets created between the houses. Besides, a part of the life that overflows from the house is also the same. By gathering various things like that, the memory here has been created. It is a proposal of an apartment house to create a new landscape while making you feel the memory, instead of erasing the memory and creating it from scratch.

Site reframing

It is an apartment house with 30 buildings and 40 units that will be reborn by reframing the site. A wall that is a boundary wall, a seismic wall, and a fire wall is inserted into an existing house that has a skeleton. This is an operation similar to seismic repair, but the site is defined by this wall. This new site will be cut out so as to straddle two or more buildings as much as possible, that is, centering on the external space. Then, a new meaning is given to the gap space that has been transformed into an air wall. Life is filled in the external space, and a lively environment is connected.

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.
