Exibition Hall Concept

This Exhibition hall is located in a heavily-forested mountain region. Mountains

spread around the hall, and there are groves and forests with wild animals.

I experimented with a rooftop garden to integrate greenery into the design and maintain the natural environment. Because the site is located on gently-

sloping hilly land, I tried to adapt the buildings to the circumstances, using

curvilinear forms and avoiding straight lines and right angles.

For maximum flexibility in displaying various types of artworks in the large

exhibition space, I used movable partition walls. Also, so that I could adjust the

lighting, I set up movable louvers along the window.

I employed a column-free space truss structure to make a large open

exhibition space and to support the weight of the rooftop garden without

columns.

Into the Realm of the Painting Concept

The themes of this museum are "nature" and "night". The museum is

different from traditional art galleries, which are enclosed in a building that

close in the evening. It will be open from noon until evening and late into the

night in the vastness of nature. There, people may pass the time relaxing, engrossed in the pictures. There are no rules or order for looking at the art. You can look at any of the artworks as you like. Like walking a path in the

forest, you can wander from picture to picture, careless of where to go next,

choosing to enjoy different ways of viewing.

Most of KAGAYA’s art works are drawings of nature and the universe. An

example is “The Celestial Railroad,” which is drawing of a scene from the well

known Japanese novel. The computer aided painting made extremely detailed drawing possible. You can enjoy large art works both from far away and

up close. I propose an exhibition space in which people don’t look at framed

paintings in a row on the wall, but they gaze intently at a large painting and

immerse themselves the realm in the artist created.

Since the history of architecture began People have lived in architectural forms To keep off the rain and storm To cope with the summer heat or winter cold To live in comfort

To protect lives from the mavels of nature Architecture needed to be hard

Everyone has lived thinking If we are in a hard box We can live safely

But, then…

Is hardness exactly what the architecture should be like?

The space we live in We human beings are “soft” creatures Having bodies composed of skins and muscles

How can I make soft architecture which is soft like human beings

If there were “soft” architecture, what kind of

life stile would we be able to live?

This is a proposal for a dwelling which will

pursue "softness" from all angles - such as

building materials, shape, and flexibility – so that this building may function in community

as both a place to learn and as a place to live, the focus being on children.

It is regrettable that results

of "softness" lacked cohesion.

It seems like play ground park.

The sense of form in the

architecture is insubstantial, though the unique space is

remembered unawares. Because of concern that she had been focused on only competing

with a strained wooden structure, the work received few votes at

first, however, it was reassessed because of the strongly intuitive way

in which structure was formed through the use of fabric.

In this proposition "Mighty

nature itself.

Yume-Shima, an ar tificial

solution is not to use, to the full,

every means at our disposal to

prevent from sinking the man-

This is a colorful, as if it is Lego Blocks, and perfect powerful presentation. As

entrust with a rise in a sea level and land subsidence of artificial island, sunken

containers are left and disposed, and stacked one after another. They venture not

to say about the question such as inner function, deterioration of sunken parts,

differential settlement and approaching only ships. The proponents symbolize

containers as civilization, and ringing an alarm bell to rise in a sea level by the radical

methods reclaim land from the sea by containers above the sea surface. Also, they

show that dilemma that the more they stack containers the more containers sink themselves. The symbolic message using containers was evaluated highly.
