Democracy of BATH                 Â Â?                                                                       

 Japanese political system has been adopted parliamentary democracy. But Japanese democracy Index is the lowest rank in another developed country.The low representation of women in politics (13.70%),low freedom of the press media,and low voter turnout(53.86%). It make Japan


democratic state

and this made the

dissociation of citizen and politics. If the essence of democracy is regard citizen in the same light as politician,They should have an even relationship and closely connection. Therefore,In this project,I designed the public space that citizen can easily have an interaction with polititian on an equal footing in the front yard of the national diet building.

 As climbing to the upper layer, the clothes that people wear become thinner and eventually have a heart-to-heart talk. Then people are not bound by their social status / class, and it will be possible to eliminate the gap between "politicians and citizens". Then,create immediate relationship without a social status

 In recent years, the tomb which has no relatives to mourn their death has become a social problem. It will not be taken care of by the bereaved family. Tombstones are left untreated, They are eating the area of Japanese cemetery. As for the bereaved families eagerly visit the grave after the deceased, but as time goes by, the bereaved heart moves away from the tombstone and can not be care fully. Therefore, I proposed a grave that gradually returns naturally over time.

In Akashi city of Hyogo prefecture, there is an area dotted with burial cemetery along the coast. This is the "Streamed burial cemetry" that the bodies buried in the cemetery return to the sea when the tsunami occurs.the bereaved family moved the subject of prayer to the sea by returning the bodies to the sea.

Following this custom,I propose a grave that gradually returns to nature.For that, make a grave by wood.And,place it on the coastline. Due to the fullness of the tide, the cemetery will not soak or immerse in the water.The timber grave will gradually decay and eventually will be swept away and will return to the sea.

Formative Heritage    


 "Formative heritage" is a civil engineering work such as a bridge or a tunnel which is no longer used for some reason, and construction was interrupted on the way.We are searching ways to ďŹ nd architectural value on Formative heritage and reuse it without dismantling. What I tackled was a plan to reuse waste treatment plant. The Nishinomiya West plant is a waste treatment plant that became a waste furnace in 2012 triggered by the construction of a new factory.I attempted to convert this plant to a Zoo which exhibit alien species .

 The site is an island sandwiched between two rivers. Structures in the island are left without being demolished.Because it is expensive to demolish it. Therefore, ďŹ rst of all, I did reduction and remove only unusable parts.

Alien species

 Currently, there are many alien species in Japan. For example, a raccoon is cited as a representative one. Through the epidemic of Japanese animation "Raccoon Rascal" they came to be kept as pets all over Japan in the 1970s. However, many individuals escaped or intentionally abandoned by the owner because their hands are dexterous and ferocious.And the wild Raccoon spread and breed throughout the country. Raccoon wild has eaten agricultural crops and cultured fish and destroys ecosystems in Japan, causing adverse effects on economic damage and ecosystems.

Then it was certiďŹ ed as a speciďŹ c alien species in 2015, and disinfection began. Species alien organisms are caught and then slaughtered, and in 2014 about 30,000 raccoons are being killed annually. Not limited to raccoons, animals imported into Japan and forced to wild are not few, many of which are said to be harmful and controlled.

In this facility, we pick up animals that are to be slaughtered, selected from the alien species list "Japanese invasive alien species worst 100" set by the Japanese Ecological Society. Breed those animals and make them public. Appropriate facilities and safety fences etc. are added as appropriate. Link the exotic species being slaughtered and this facility that had disposed of garbage. And ask visitors about alien species.
