Multi-layered continuum crawling on the ground  Rethinking the Earth-Architecture-Human Relationship in the City

Outline of work

Architecture is built on the ground, and human activities are carried out in it. By pursuing the fundamental theme of architecture, which is the relationship between earth-architecture-people, we will consider the new possibilities of earth in modern cities where this relationship is diverging. The site is Araki-cho, Shinjuku-ku. Due to the peculiar Sri Bachi terrain, it was the garden of the Matsudaira family's upper mansion, but it was sold off in the early Meiji era and became a flower district by the hands of the common people. And change its appearance.
For the residential area inside Sribachi, which is being built on a large scale and becomes taller as the population grows, we propose a housing that can only be found in this place and its renewal method, which was built from the relationship of earth-architecture-people.

Mercumal of Regression in the Age of Self-Disconnection  -What brings about the preservation of geographic diversity and the rematerialization of the body and the world-

Outline of work

French thinker Paul Virilio is worried about the loss of geographic diversity under the innovation of the modern speed world. The material world is replaced by a functional plane world that produces smooth movements, which causes our bodies to slide through the city as if they were ghosts that symbolize floating. We cannot ignore the moment when the material world declines due to the immaterial and ghostly present. Virilio, who sees the inherent loss of the body here, is driven by the need to re-discover the tactile recovery, gait, and feel of alpinism. And those recovery is the rematerialization of the body and the world.
Virilio encounters a concrete lump bunker that was built and left abandoned during World War II. Then, in a momentary confrontation with the mass, he felt that he was about to be crushed both internally and externally. The space was too small for the realistic movement of the body, giving it a weight that would cover the entire building. It made me feel the oppressive feeling peculiar to the prototype architecture, and the form that wore the human form showed the figure of the body. In addition, the female name given to the Bunker suggested a desire to return to the womb as an evacuation site.
Here, with the theme of recovery of the absent body, by using the Bunker study analyzed from an archaeological perspective, we found signs of a return to matter, and a landscape aimed at preserving geographical diversity. Propose a maintenance facility.

Sand construction and city planning for refugee camps

The suggestion is to use research information from both sand and space to design sand architecture and city planning for the Zaatari camp, improve the quality of life of stakeholders and improve the overall organization of the camp. is. At Zaatari Refugee Camp, neighborhood and district size plans are more accurate than the current examples presented by the project and can provide more examples. The current example presented by the project can start at some point and integrate into a better camp organization as a whole. Finally, the project is inspired by the March mission and has the potential to become research and prototypes for practical use in future March projects.

Bilaterally balanced architecture-Development of the modeling principles of "architecture" and "earth" at Villa Adriana, the villa of the ancient Roman emperor Hadrian's Villa

Outline of work

The purpose of this study is to trace back to the origins of "architecture" and "earth" by analyzing the morphology of Villa Adriana, the villa of the ancient Roman emperor Hadrian, and to question the relationship between the two and the landscape that they bring. That is. We define two basic concepts, the [conformation] of the space that is the basis of the composition of the architecture, and the [aspect] of the power of the architecture and the earth generated by the composition, and make the [conformation] autonomous, heteronomous, and Heteronomy, [aspect] is classified as equilibrium / imbalance. From the morphological analysis of Villa Adriana, five modeling principles in "architecture" and "earth": 1. Autonomous equilibrium (Teatro Maritimo), 2. Autonomous imbalance (3 Exedra), 3. Other-regular equilibrium (Canopus) And the Temple of Serapis), 4. Find the bilateral imbalance (Petit Palais), 5. The bilateral equilibrium (Piazza Doro).
Based on the five modeling principles, the architecture of "bilateral equilibrium" is considered to be the best concept for architecture to intervene in the earth or landscape, and the master's plan: Villa Adriana archaeological site observation facility plan Practice "bilateral equilibrium" architecture as a modern methodology. We will develop the methodology from the architecture of "bilateral equilibrium" where "architecture" and "earth" coexist in Villa Adriana, and plan the architecture of "bilateral equilibrium" where "architecture" and "earth" are fused.
The prospect of this study is to expand the definition in urban areas or other regions because the concept of "bilateral equilibrium" is universal and local.

Foundation of the way

Outline of work

We propose one disaster prevention base and three rental housing in densely sloping areas.

The target area of Nishitobe, Yokohama City is a densely populated area with steep slopes, so there are many narrow roads, stairs, steep slopes, retaining walls, and steps in the area. These are the points to be improved in the city planning, and the policy is to improve them, but at the same time, we think that the issues unique to these densely sloped areas constitute an attractive landscape unique to the Nishitobe area. Therefore, I focused on the landscape caused by the terrain, walked around the town, and wrote down sketches. The collected landscapes are categorized, and from a static perspective, various "ground levels" based on slope terrain and a rich "sequence" based on slopes and stairs are used as keywords for planning. Extract.
We will select four sites that are the most impressive points in the city sequence and propose the minimum local architectural renewal based on the overall plan. I thought about the space where people live in a continuous sequence by giving the architecture a flow line that eliminates the height difference of the district. By connecting the four buildings on one axis, a new daily flow line that can be used as an evacuation route is created. Architecture will support the lives of the city and will be the foundation for inheriting the landscape.

Peripheral tsumugi  Rethinking suburban residential areas starting from slope forests

Outline of work

It is a plan for a "house for the elderly" to be built along the slope forest that remains on the periphery of a plateau in a suburban residential area, and a plan for a "location for local people". At the same time, the plan is to pick up houses, roads, farmlands, etc. that have been clearly separated by function.
The "house for the elderly" plan is a plan for "a place to live for the elderly", and the "house" here is a "place to live". The same applies to "whereabouts for local people", both of which have the image of "expansion of a house, another house".
The site is Onomachi, Ichikawa City, Chiba Prefecture. It is an area with a mundane landscape, where rural areas have been developed into residential land and become commuter towns.
The target site is along the slope forest that remains on the periphery of the plateau of about 1 km, and the margin of the plateau is uneven due to the narrow roads created by mini-development by farmers and new residential areas in recent years, and private forests. Through repeated research, we will evaluate the topography and the characteristics of the slope forest, and develop the project at the same time as restoration along the slope forest and environmental conservation. The fields and houses that border the target area are flooded with stock due to the increasing number of abandoned cultivated land and vacant houses. By functioning along this slope forest as a new network, it will be possible to use the places where it comes into contact, and it will be a way to make effective use of the remaining livelihoods and vacant houses.
It is a proposal for the renewal of suburban residential areas by pinching the periphery of the plateau.

2050 Yokosuka Tanito Plan

Outline of work

Yokosuka is a city with the disgraceful title of the highest population decline rate in Japan. Looking at the depopulation trend, it can be seen that there are differences depending on the region, and that the population decline rate in the region called "Tanito", which refers to the terrain where people have lived and valleys are intricate for a long time, is high. However, when you actually walk around, the rich terrain makes it attractive as a living environment, and it seems that it has the value of living in the city of Yokosuka.

The problem underlying the population decline in the "Tanito area" is the "road." When "roads" are classified into "carriageways" and "sidewalks", most of them belong to "sidewalks", which causes ordinary houses to be denied ownership of cars. However, paying attention to public facilities and shops, many of them were dispersed in flat areas such as landfills, which expanded the living area and required the use of cars. The combination of these and the problem of aging has created a current situation in which the population is declining rapidly. These seem to be the price of the city's development in the absence of a master plan.

This plan is an attempt to set the point of 2050 and return the "Tanito" area to a vessel for living over a long period of time.
As a method, the flow line "circle" and the function "layer" are set as "the way" by using the existing elements as clues, and they are layered according to the undulations of the land, so that they are three-dimensional. Network is formed and a new master plan of the city is created.
I hope that people can live a rich life that is unique to Yokosuka by living in a collective dwelling called a town.

Crevasse-Designing an existing building as a terrain-

I want to inspire my hometown (Takaoka City, Toyama Prefecture), which I have an attachment to but is boring. This year, I will try to remodel the general supermarket "Takaoka SATY" near the station.

The building, which is a huge building, is regarded as the terrain, and a river-like "road" is drawn into the building from the viaduct running next to it and connected to the city. The road cuts Takaoka SATY. A "bicycle path" and a "promenade" flow three-dimensionally into the plateau that remains after being torn apart.

As a result, huge buildings that are too large for the city become familiar with the city. Also, one big lump becomes several lumps, and it becomes a space with a character. The city and the line are connected, and the bustle overflows into the city from the protruding road.

It is expected that the building will swallow the functions of the city and will function like a hub (a repeater that collects and connects multiple terminals).

Color of microtopography

An apartment house in which working places are three-dimensionally dispersed in order to eliminate the fixed posture in desk work. By arranging the slabs in a bent spiral shape, we created microtopography corresponding to various working postures.

Living with micro-topography-Layered 100-year-old apartment building-

We propose an apartment house that surrounds the building with a gentle terrain-like slope instead of stairs that are difficult for the elderly to use, and the lives of the residents overflow there.

A 100-year-old home that follows the ground

Plan a Nagaya to cross the steps created along the terrain. The steps ensure privacy and open in two directions to build relationships with the surroundings.

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.
