In addition, we will categorize related videos, books, magazines, and buildings, aiming to be one of the largest and most advanced architectural design platforms.

Expanding stone landscape
――Memorable Iyo Oshima ――

Outline of work

Miyakubocho, Oshima, Imabari City, Ehime Prefecture, where I spent two and a half years in laboratory activities. During the activity, I developed an architecture by Oshima stone in a certain place in the town where I was asked "what should I do here?"

Through the local project, I experienced the stone-building technique with the local stone shop people, and I sympathized with their pride in the local assets and at the same time wanted to protect those things that were in danger of survival. We investigated and analyzed the possibility of stone architecture, including modern architecture, but the final result was the masonry technology rooted here in Oshima. Oshima Miyakubo-cho, where the active quarry is located, is a house with a retaining wall and a huge stone wall.

In this proposal, the masonry was designed with functions and shapes to extend the landscape of this stone. The masonry landscape flows like a swell and is built as it is, giving a feeling of expanse without boundaries between the inside and the outside. The architecture that integrates with the hidden landscape, the architecture itself becomes a part of the landscape, and visitors walk in the landscape of Miyakubo without boundaries between the inside and outside while walking around. While maintaining the functions of the existing fish market, Japanese boat warehouse, museum, and meeting place, we designed a new symbol tower with a cottage, Japanese boat cafe, and stone bath.

Oshima stone, which is a material with a strong presence, is a symbol of Oshima's strength and rooted culture, and I would like the people of this town to take pride in protecting it with technology. The expanded stone landscape is depicted as a powerful memory for those who will become the new scenery of Miyakubo.

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.
