Structural design of regional library by reciprocal form structure using algorithm

Outline of work

The cyprocal frame is a structural form in which members avoid concentrating at one node and the members support each other. It has the characteristic that a large curved surface can be constructed by combining short members, and has been used for wooden frames since the beginning of the 12th century. In recent years, a complexly assembled reciprocal frame has come to be accurately designed by using a design method called algorithmic design. In this design, we tried to design a regional library with a three-dimensional reciprocal frame as a structure by using an algorithm for a roof surface given as a free-form surface. In constructing a three-dimensional reciprocal frame for a free-form surface, a reciprocal frame is constructed from the free-form surface divided by a polygonal grid, and a physical engine is used for the algorithm. It was possible to configure. As a preliminary analysis, the structural analysis of the reciprocal frame obtained from the triangular, quadrangular, and hexagonal grids was performed, and the most rigid pattern among them was adopted for this design. The site is located in the Saku area of Nagano prefecture, and by adopting larch, which occupies 80% of the planted forest in Saku, for the reciprocal frame on the roof surface, we planned a warm book space covered with the warmth of wood.

Symbiotic architecture  --Reading and practice of systems thinking seen in Mingei--

Outline of work

Today, in a rapidly changing natural environment and an uncertain social environment, architecture is demolished regardless of its original lifespan. Among them, designers are required to design systems that include mutual relationships with society. In this research, we will read the folk art system as sustainable manufacturing and embody it as an architectural design method using BIM. The target site is at the east exit of Omiya Station. Surrounded by a shopping street in front of the station, Ichinomiya Street leading to the approach to Hikawa, a city planning road, and a redevelopment area of a large complex, it can be used for a wide variety of purposes such as housing, apparel, beauty, eating and drinking, offices, and classrooms. It is mixed. This is a miscellaneous and active landscape created in the midst of changes in the town. I will leave the existing use in this place and gradually design the construction while incorporating the changes around the site. Repeat criticism and renewal of architecture from a compound-eye and objective viewpoint using BIM tools, not from a monocular viewpoint only for designers. The program, which decomposes complex environmental information in urban areas into elements using BIM tools and reintegrates them, transforms them in the social demands that are unfolded over time, and has relationships with unique history, culture, nature, commerce, and life. It is a system that constantly visualizes and continues to create new value.
This design is an opportunity to regain the "Mingei" vitality that the modern city has lost.

Porous Structure  ――Proposal of space design with vegetation / plant structure by computational design ――

Outline of work

In recent years, in architectural design, computational design using 3D CAD and BIM and CNC fabrication technology such as laser cutters and 3D printers have been attracting attention. The development and spread of these two technologies has expanded the possibilities of architectural design, enabling more sophisticated and free design than before. The purpose of this production is to propose a space design that uses the modeling of the natural world as a clue, using computational design. We planned a space design in which independent members support each other, with two elements: the phenomenal modeling created by nature, the modeling principle peculiar to plants, and the macroscopic and microscopic elements. A region-specific topography is created by accidentally connecting various things such as climate, geographical location, and ecosystem. Similarly, the shape of plants has evolved by changing its shape due to factors such as adaptation to the environment, growth process, and risk hedging. We worked on space design using digital technology to create the shape created by these phenomenal factors. Based on the shape of nature, it is created into undulations and Voronoi polygons, and the morphological principles and rationality inherent in plants that cannot be obtained manually by humans are incorporated into a single landscape. This is an experimental proposal for space design that suggests the morphological principle of nature.

Architecture as a phenomenon-Architectural design method using pseudo-random numbers-

Since ancient times, people have walked around in natural space, searching for a "place" that suits them, and creating architecture there. This is the first architecture. People did not create architecture in an empty space, but created their own space by feeling the "place" and using it. However, modern architecture pursued universality based on the idea of functionalism, and created the present city while deviating from the spatial concept of "place." On the other hand, in natural space, the spatial concept of "place" is not arbitrary, and in the relative relationship with everything, random and inhomogeneousness generated by certain rules and processes. It is a one-time phenomenon. As such a one-time phenomenon, the architectural space was constructed based on certain rules and processes. While connecting the set of points obtained by plotting pseudo-random numbers two-dimensionally, the plane and cross-section of the building are constructed to create a complex form that is not homogeneous. In this design, an information and cultural facility for residents living in the coastal area was planned in Shin-Takashima, Yokohama City using this method. The formed space will create various "places" and will be transformed into architecture in a broad sense that includes various "places". In this master's design, we focused on the spatial concept of "place" that has a mental and physical influence on human beings, and fixed it by pursuing the relationship between abstract "place" and human beings from various spatial configurations. We proposed an architectural space as a phenomenon that transforms the nature of the space itself.

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.
