Flashback and afterimage -Planning to reconstruct vacant digged-
Human is selfish. They flatten the mountain whenever they like, and they make the biulding and live in. So... they abandon it when they don’ t use. I have many memory like that I can’ t have it in the fanctional city in the mountain. I think we must not flatten it easily. The moutain is more important. We sould respect it. I propose museum to solve this problem. I apply the characeristic of mountain to building.
About the ruins The building not to be used will be ruin. There are a lot of it in japan. Peoples doesn’ t want to visit here to be afraid. But I feel that the ruin like right picture has strange attractive. This construction doesn’ t have function at all. Trees and branches enter inside. The rainy spill from the ceiling. This lose aim and leave only formal space.
whether does the ruin exist between nature and architeture?
Site is Shirogane takanawa. Here is very famous for rich city. There is big hill in the past. But as the city grew more developing, it was flattened. Tokyo
The process of space construction -Characteristic-
-The space of model-
-Basic model form-
How to enter light? Becaouse I want to understand the characteristic of space in trees
Study Model By the process, to abstract the spatial characteristic of mountain, I made the model. So I put togather those and mede spatial construction as I think light, volume, obstacle, Depth/high and etc.
Total is 29models. I try to put togather these and make 4 building.
The proposal A
There are a lot of physical and visual obstacle in disorder in mountain. The functional building for people doesn’ t have something like this. But by useing disorder obstacle like this effectively, functional compleating building can produce new value (Like the ruin is attaructive). I constituted the space to put togather different voluem and sloap.
-an obstacle model-
The obstacl produses fantastic spaces. It is backstreet, exhibitting space and a lounge. We go to the invisual strange space, and will feel like going to mountain.
The proposal C
There are a lot of trees in mountain. the trees extending perpendicularly make the narrow street and let us felt so tence. Sometimes we are released and can view extending viewing horizontalily. I proposed the building imitating that.
I seem to climb like in the sunbeams shining through branches of treesthe space which continues upwards make us feel like being in the tree.
Proposal B -Light differ modela
The various light enter in mountain. There are the sharp light inserting in through between some branches and the random light in through between leafs. The fantasic space will appear when disorderly those apply to orderly space in a building. I planed approaching in through a lot of trees.
The sharp and soft light change by an angle. We seem to be in the sunbeams streaming through the leaves of trees.
Proposal D -Cave modelThe space in this building has the charactaristic of overwhelming nature. We will experience this effect inside. As the voluem which is put togather change, this constitution is that the light and dark link character of art.
Components Number: 3,4,20
The voluem extend from the light. We encounter holy art. And the extending veluem and difference between light and dark make fantasic spaces.
As the time passed, many trees grew around here and these buildings is older. People who visit here begin to view these as art. And these will revolve nature. These will be existence like that there is no building in fanctional city. I hope that people who live the city feel natural space.
Geography is made by neture.
There are a lot of back street made by previous ground and building in outside.
There will build in position by
end ground and piling ground.
In contrast, I adopt ground incline to building directly.
The back street in outside changes like inside. And the unclear space are made by building and nature.
Building statue stroking the Ground Invisual Ground There are a lot of Invisual Ground in Tokyo. In contrast, human make the ups and downs in ground by themselves. I suppose the Museum to be able to solve this contradiction. Site is Shirogane takanawa in Tokyo, there is many back street around building in here. I made The potential and various element this street has change like a inside space. And I applied to this building. This building has strange atmosphere whether this is building or nature.
Study I thought how does the element of tree and light adopt inside space. So I examined how to open the window, direction and position.
the long street the short street
more feeling pressure less feeling pressure
the window is big the window is small
Exsistant light enter from outsaide. This make very comfortable space.Many kind of opening make various impressing space. Many work of art harmonize this space.
+2700: This space is very viewing be good. A lot of light enter inside. Here is like almost outside.
Open Spsce +2700
+2300: The celing is dropping as we down stairs. The space is dark gradually.
+1600: The celing is dropping as we go to depth. So I can t look a view gradually.
+2300: We don t know whether is this building architecture or something to nature.
The house protects family, the house protects a blank I think that we forget opennig the outside and viewing the outside much better. Recentury, our city in Japan is homogeneous becouse there is little blank by the problem of increasing population and sanitary. In the past, the local life and culture spreaded the blank. And this blank is good midlle area of house and outside. This blank made us feel like conecting neighborhood. However as the time pass, we think that our private is very important and respcted because our life style have been very changed. The japanese traditional narrow wooden passageway and earthen opennig outside and more inside space is littele. The fence separate each houseses, houses and we are introversive gradually. So I proposed that I attmpt to redefine the blank as the role of narrow wooden passageway, earthen and backstreet.
The distance of between hauses is very nallow in japanese city recentuly. So The fence pertition off each gardens. As a result, only family own it, and they are going to be introversive more and more.
I attemt to establish a blank as inside of the house. We can view like the drawing city as the past. For example, as a japanese traditional narrow wooden passageway and an earthen In the past.
These houses make various blank by the nomber and constitution of esch family. Sometimes, the blank has the role to open outside, be only mine and be for family.
Life dwelling house Our houses is too conclusion. Our living society was limited since ancient times gradually. The same time, the house has become independent. The house revolving in fanctional and effective is too strong for anything. I think we forget to lean. To lean is universal for all lifes. It make there admire and feel kind. Although what nestles up by the context of land changes, nestling up does not change.
To the mass of tree, I donâ€™ t follow restrictive order such as a function and efficiency, but I make the hole shaping the house. The people and peculiar animals and plants will make the order here. The nature house comes into living with sevire and wealth of big nature.
Floating bio house This proposal is the new confortable living space to live with small nature. I think design of space that we can live with various living things in, to apply penetrate and existence of glass. The roof has the role to carry off the rainwater previously. But I turn over it. So The roof has the role to fill rainwater. And This roof’ s material is the glass. The living creature began to live gradually in filled rainwater, because of the circulate effect of nature. As a result, the small an ecological system will complete in here. This ecological sysytem can conect to insaide closely. And each action or change of small life and plants spread to inside vividly. Shade of plants and rainwater can make the inside be cool. This space is that we can be related to small nature each other and live with.
The roof has role to carry off the rainwater originally
We can get the cool effect inside, Because we store the rainwater to drain originally.
By the sunbeams shining through branches of trees by an underwater plant, it can make the space cool. And it is connected to reduction of the energy burden by air conditioning etc.
In the contrast oliginal role, I turn over the roof and I change roof’s material to glass
The sand, fallen leaves and speaces be carried by rainwater, wind and birds will pile up
Heat of sun lught
Shade of plants and creatures Cool eﬀect
Plants grow, incects gather and small ecological system completes gradually in here.
Indoors, it lets glass pass and becomes various lives and the space where we can live together.
Roof： acrylic glass Clear degree and lightfastness are excellent. It can take in environment on the roof. And This inside can be united with outside.
By using glass with high insulation properties, only light can be penetrated and heat can be intercepted. And various glasses has different expressive permeability. It make more confartable space.
