The Shape of the City Agriculture and Architecture to come 2014

Y-GSA Ryue Nishizawa Studio Fall Semester :Awarded "First Prize"(Solo)

This project aims to suggest “new age city-agriculture”.Based on a research aobut the farm land in Hazawa-region Yokohama,It is found that the large amount of farm land property had became to be subdivided into pieces,and as a result,the local farmer came not to be able to make a profit,and not to have a young successor.To respond this facts,I propose to invite a third-party such as enterprise,and short-stay people who can keep managing this land,and to make high-profit crops with a little amount ,at the same time, a large amount of species to sustain this farm land.That is to say,generating new environment structure where the new player who support farmland and local people can enjoy it.Hazawa farm land doomed to be out of use because of lack of young successor and also a new citymasterplan of new train station near here.In this project,I propose to strategically use of land which Yokohama city has to relate station and farmland,and to invite new player who manages farm.In the project,I could propose environtal structure that exists identically to this place,and could give program to it and architecture that harmony with human being and environment.

The architecture is generated from the background of city-agriculture.What gives identity to here is that the element of “promenade to the station”and”greenhouse where a variety of species grows with little amount” .The inner composition is made of “stay place under the long overhang roof for people who want to start the farm “and “promenade to the train”,”a lab. where enterprise and local farmer can collaborate with,and produce”.”market along the geography”.This program makes soft boundary between then,at the same time,makes a sense of neighborhood as a one room.




In this project,japanese loggia and greenhouse is set between place for staying and also promenade.This makes possible to control the glance,and to make baffer zone.As a result,passanger and staying people may start to have conversation,and passanger can see the farm activity,and can stay from the outside,and havest crops,and produce original items.This is new way of life style here.

Hazawa ,Yokohama

-farm land property by the farmer in HazawaThis is notation of land property around the hazawa station.Through a research,I found that farm land in front of the new station especially subdivided. Because of subdivision,the local farmer can not make a profit,and not to have a young successor.The farm land will disappear.On the other hand,I found good point :local farmer know each other due to the proximity.In order to keep this Hazawa character,I propose to keep this farm by gathering a variety of character,not as redevelopment.

Farm land in Hazawa Seemingly,it seems as a one property,but in fact,There are a lot of land owner.

Even if the land is subdivided ,some farmer succeeds in growing ďŹ&#x201A;ower in the greenhouse.Paying attention these people,it seems to be possible to sustain city agriculture by seeding high proďŹ t crops with little amount.(stopping to make low income crops like a cabbage)

”Kinetic/Selective/Sustainable-Intermediate Unit 2013 Spring ,Koh Kitayama Studio in Y-GSA between Architecture & City” Selected as excellent work in the studio Yokohama inner harbor area has been developed as industrial area,so ordinary people can not access to this area.Recently,new city strategy is required toward to this brown-field because of changing industrial scheme. Therefore,I propose intermediate unit between architecture and city in 2050 which is sustainable,and is correspond to changes (various kind of way of life,climate,environment).This can be achieved by system like "open building" which constitute of hard parts & soft parts.This corresponds to density change in time,climate.Resident can take part in building architecture.Thus Resident can have sense of belonging.

Large panel is not easy to slide comparing to light panel.I assumed large panel doesnt move so often.Space made by short span column will be used as housing,oďŹ&#x192;ce.On the other hand,Large space made by short span column will be used as junior high school,market,clinic.Mixig diďŹ&#x20AC;erent scale of column make it possible to mix-used architecture.

Hard part consists of slab ,column,kitchen,bathroom.The width of slab is limited under the 8000mm,because natural sun light enter.And,shape of slab is like a fold giving terrace,because it can get maximum amount of air. Also,vertical connetion is achieved by making void in a same distance.Shower,bath room,toilet,wahing-machine is shared by 10 to 20 people and under 10 people.

-Soft part consists of sliding panel and roof. There are various type of panel in the outside skin:vertical louver/horizontal louver/lattice/bamboo blind/.Membrane roof collect rain water.Furthermore,it makes half outside space as a Event.This instrument support activity under the roof.Sliding panel outside has a role to control environment.On the other hand, inner panel control relationships between humans.

-PrologueYokohama has unique city structure surrounding 3km diameter water surface.Since yokohama inner harbor area has been reclaimed many times as a industrial area,citizens has not been entered the area.Recently,new urban strategy is required in the brown field,because almost of all industrial company and factory move to rural area and foreign country due to the change of industrial structure. Therefore,I propose the new way of life in 2050:each people can select own way of life corresponding to diversed life style.So to speak,selective life style:how each people connect,and corresponding to seasons.

in yokohama 2050,information industry and creative industry all be more important.So,skyscraper is no longer necessary.Many small office and housing,culture,art will be mixed in one place,and each program is connected as network. 3km water surface will be used in water transportation such as boat.This connect many places such as Kannai area,Yokohama station,minatomirai. As a result,This new way of life feeling the ocean change Yokohama as a bed town to home town.

-Social Background-


Industrial structure will be changed into creative

-History of reclamation-

70% area is restricted to access.

-Population inflow into Yokohama2050It is assumed that population of Yokohama in 2050 will be about 300,000 people.And,11,000 people from Tokyo will inflow into Yokohama in 2050. Tokyo Yokohama

-Rain>Sharing collected water by membrane in 120people >Sharing energy made by compost and raw material. >Japanese uses water as a average 1688mm/year=141mm/month=4.7mm/day In short,4.8l/ha=48000l/ha If the density is 127people/ha,4800/127=378>313 This shows that we can live with collecting water.

As a precondition,This industrial area is seen as "tabura rasa".So,there are 2 main important factor in this project.One is that climate(sunshine/wind/the amount of rain) because this is uncheangible factor.The other is that the necessity of architecture that can adopt variety of changes such as variety of people"s life due to the changing social situation.Thinking this factor enable me to transform the inductrial area into social mixed area.

Sharing collected water among each 120people

-Pier Temparature Although sea wind come to the periphery of pier,it doesn't enter into the pier because of heat generated by sun shine. To solve this problem,I propose the pier ďŹ lled with a lot of trees.This cool down the temparature of the pier.

"Local -Social unit" sharing along a Valley 2012 Competition 47th Central Grass International Architectural Design Competition Awarded "Second Prize" (among 428 works)

What is the town hall for those who live in a

disaster hitted area? What can I do in order to make familiarity and Otsuti pride? It seems to me that the town hall should be used as the base of a life, and building it together with those who live. In this architecure,people build the town hall together using lumber that tells culture where 200 people live along the valley. This can be common place for peripheral people, and primary shelter to escape from disaster,and root for traditional festival ,and makes new landscape and recovery symbol of Otsuti.

a typical shrine in Otsuchi-cho

Yasuwata-ward (After 3.11 disaster)


the geographical feature,the mountain lies back by typical rias, there are few ďŹ&#x201A;atlands, and most of the land serves as steep mountain. Therefore,I chose a place called Yasuwata-ward that has a typical shrine in Otsuchi-cho. As you can see above,houses remains in along a valley escaped 3.11 and also disaster in the past. It can be said that place from this line comparatively safe place. I build architecture that strengthens this area.

-Land use History-

I found the fact that village layout has not been changed at all.These village has been escaped from disaster many times. According to the fact,it seems to me that layout along the valley enable architecture to be common place for peripheral people and infrastructure to escape from disaster and new landscape of Otsuti potentially. This architecture becomes to be opened for the reason that it is easy to access,and also safety can be ensured because it is not high re-location nor ďŹ&#x201A;at ground.



Even now,village along valley exist in many places.

I imagined the landscape;japanese traditional wooden structure "掛造" overlaps with swingin.The small wooden structure is inserted in the existing building making new structure.And the curtain wall of building is removed. The private space that has been closed in the past come to be public open

space,and making wider and smaller size of sharing space where wind flows. Sharing space made by rebuilding overlaps,and makes three-dimensional terrace which is made by constructing loose partition roof and floor on the structure. A various kind of relationships is made,and a sense of distance changes continuously,and people and animals and plants change their sense of distance and makes relationship mutually.

Memory of 2.6Km

2012 Competition 6th HASEKO House Design Competition Theme:"Renovation of your familiar place" Awarded "Fine work"

When I was childhood,the station existed nearby was

The local wood structure is inserted in the existing station. A new structure will be mixed in a line, and people share a line as a garden,and they begin to grow vegetables. Activity came to be along with a track, and a line serves as a park and spreads in the town. Landscape spreads sharing a line to an overall community. The line and station which has been supported a town for a long time come to play the role which supports a town again in a new way.

our environment. Everyone loves the station. It is so sad to lose it.

So,for this reasons,I imagined collective housing which is to be inherited as a memory for futuregeneration,and will be carried out maintenance by resident in the local railroad of Kurikomacity,Miyagi,Tohoku Japan decreasing in population. The titile is "Renovation of a line and a station."

I hope this collective house becoming a bridge to the future.




The site is 2.6 km from Kurikoma Station and Toriyazaki Station which is next to Kuriharata Station. The Kurihara country railroad discontinued line in 2007, and the line and station which were familiar with people left behind to the town as it was.

-diagramThe line is changed into the yard which spreads in a town. The 2.6km long and slender yard connects the town.

Many structures, such as a steel pole, are left behind to the station.It is connected by reinforcing them.

The dwelling unit is planned by connecting between new frame and plat home. Each dwelling unit is planned so that the yard may be faced, and the yard comes to be used freely by the resident.

There is a stand sliding on a railroad. It may be used as a table, chair, or display of garden.

By using new structure,the line and the station are mixed connecting new volume and line which were divided in the past. Eaves is a yard of a dwelling,and also a public space which spreads to the town.



Robe of Facility

Theme:”Visualized Facility Architecture” 2012 Competition 27th Architectural Environmental Design Competition Awarded “Fine Work”

I propose the Architecture that wear facility robe.This robe catch the japanese four season,cilimate,and converge it into a comfortable environment. Standard facility such as pipe & duct which has been placed on the roof or core will disappeared and minimized in this project.As a result,new visualized facility turn out to be out like wearing light clothe,and create active landscape. This architecture correspond to four season with a variety of special membrane,and adjust the environment like we wear clothe.In summer,one membrane absorb water ,and evaporate ,and give comfortable air.In winter,one membrane block cold wind,and receive sun light,and accumulate heat,and this heats room.When it is comfortable day,we can open all the membrane window,and feel the outside air. Everytime wind flows,this architecture expand as we breathe air.This architecture get dressed and undressed along with season.This make us & city to feel season landscape.

-Wearing facility architecture-

Ever since standard facility makes environment from the inside with a huge energy.Instead of such thw way,thinking the another way,:skin between architecture and ouside catch the Jpanese four season,and converge it into comfortable environment.I set the goal of hybrid architecture between facade and facility.

There are various kind of seasons in Japan.However,ever since modern building and tall building never changed its behaviour toward to climate.It seems to me this kind of building has been deprive us of season.I popose,the way of facility be,:catch the seasons and converge it into comfortable environment.

C)light membrane

Using transparent membrane make it possible to spread light.This also block cold wind in winter,and conduct heat.


-Detail sectionCreating environment along with season by dressing membrane.In summer,Strong wind flows to the surface of water absorbing membrane,and evaporate and makes cool air into the room.Furthermore,sunlight reflects from water storage sash.The membrane can be set each

600mm distance,and user can adjust it.Not only membrane but also heat strage slab make it possible to get sun light into the room,this creates greenhouse like space.In this space,user move along with seasons making environment by myself.
